Our mission is to make education accessible. With short and fun videos, taught by great teachers, we help students easily master any subject and achieve their educational goals.
We help students throughout their entire educational journey

Making better college & career decisions
With expert guidance and over 50,000 articles about different school, degree & career options - we help students make smarter decisions.
We believe that everyone has the right to an affordable, quality education.
As a society, we uphold the notion that it's a good thing — the very basis of hope and the key to the promise of upward mobility. But brutally high fees and an educational system slow to realize that everyone learns differently have created a paradox. Learning should be fun and accessible to everyone, but in many cases, it simply isn't. At Study.com, we aim to deliver a better way to learn — one that lets you learn what you want, the way you want, and in a way you can afford. We want to empower you to become that better version of yourself education is supposed to allow.
We help over 15 million students each month. Here's what a few are saying…
Saved time & money
I am a mom of 8 and could not afford the time or money that it would take for me to attend college. This gives me a chance to study and take exams that will not only save me money but also shorten the time to finish college.
Fun & Engaging
You covered in a few minutes what the Yale professor couldn't get through in an hour. The visuals made it interesting and engaging without detracting from the material. Thank you so much for helping me to save time, money and stress.
My students have stated repeatedly how they like the videos and classroom performance […] has improved greatly. For example, last fall, the overall class GPA for my section of 350 students improved by half a letter grade…
Great study tool
The psychology videos were a great study tool. I aced the CLEP exam and earned 3 college credits!
Brings life back to learning
Nothing out there can put the interest back in to learning like [Study.com] does. Kids don't laugh while they are learning from a textbook like they do from Study.com. Study.com stimulates, teaches, and puts life back into learning.
Changed the way I teach
The videos have changed the way I teach! The videos on Education Portal accomplish in five minutes what would take me an entire class.

How we got started
In 2002, Cal Poly students Ben and Adrian were frustrated with the rising cost of college and the lack of tools for empowering students. They decided to team up and start Study.com with the mission of making education accessible. After over a decade of work, Study.com is now a profitable, self-funded company that reaches over 15 million students a month. Our video-based online courses are the fastest and most affordable way to earn college credit and consist of over 10,000 fun and engaging lessons. We've also created comprehensive guidance counseling resources to help students save money and make informed decisions with their education and careers. About our team and core values
