Our mission is to make affordable quality college-level education universally available. Our vision is a world where cost will no longer be a barrier to quality, college-level education for any student, anywhere, anytime.
This vision, along with the diverse needs of the institutional partners and individual learners we serve, has led us to design a differentiated set of content and services. Our courses are designed to meet the needs of:
Homeschool parents wanting to provide their high school students with high-quality, all-inclusive courses that allow them to earn college credit
Individual learners who are underserved, economically disadvantaged, and/or in resource-deficient areas
Adults looking to improve their financial circumstances by expanding their professional options
Public and private high schools looking to implement early college high school through concurrent-enrollment and dual-credit courses
Higher education institutions wanting to provide cost-effective, affordable general education solutions for college and high school students
Businesses and organizations needing to prepare their employees for success in the modern workplace
We believe that the world we inhabit is knowable, at least in part, and that there are objective and universal truths. We believe that the pursuit of these truths is a foundational requirement for the acquisition of knowledge and understanding and that the search for truth, through inquiry and rational dialogue, leads to personal and communal flourishing.
The quality and flexibility of our content support the pursuit of Truth appropriate to the needs of learners, instructors, and institutions.
We believe that personal and societal growth is achieved through individuals deliberating and applying knowledge — in their personal lives, communities, and businesses. Further, we believe the creation of new knowledge by the imaginative exploration of new opportunities and frontiers is an essential condition for human progress.
We design engaged-learning experiences that foster student agency and imaginative exploration.
We believe freedom plays a pivotal role in human progress; that personal, civil, and economic liberties are essential to human flourishing. Furthermore, we believe the free and unrestricted access to knowledge about our world is a fundamental requirement for an informed and engaged citizenry.
True freedom requires access to education, which is why we focus on affordability and equitable access for every member of society.
