Celebrating 50 Years of Educational Excellence: A Milestone for Applied Scholastics

Half a Century of Empowering Global Education—Applied Scholastics Celebrates Golden Anniversary at International Educator Training Campus in St. Louis, Missouri

Educators, supporters, and community leaders from around the globe recently gathered at the Spanish Lake International Training Center in Spanish Lake, St. Louis, Missouri, to mark a significant milestone: the 50th anniversary of Applied Scholastics. This global non-profit organization, founded on the educational principles and discoveries of L. Ron Hubbard, has dedicated half a century to enhancing educational outcomes for students and teachers across six continents.

The weekend-long celebration featured an awards banquet highlighted by performances from Washington University’s After Dark a cappella group and the Midwestern District Choir. Prominent local figures, including the Rev. C. Jessel Strong and Ms. Marilyn Parker, joined the festivities, underscoring the profound impact of Applied Scholastics on the St. Louis community and beyond.

A commendation from Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri, accompanied by a US flag flown over the Capitol, honored the organization’s long-standing commitment to education. Over the decades, Applied Scholastics has grown from a dedicated group of educators in the United States to a global force in education, with nearly a thousand affiliates in 72 countries and over 180,000 educators trained, impacting more than 61 million students.

Despite these achievements, the need for effective literacy and education solutions remains critical, with millions still struggling with basic literacy. Applied Scholastics’ Study Technology continues to offer revolutionary results in literacy and comprehension, addressing educational challenges and setting a path for future generations.

As Applied Scholastics looks ahead, it renews its commitment to expanding its reach and effectiveness, aiming to equip educators, students, and parents with the tools necessary for success in the coming decades. This golden anniversary not only celebrates past successes but also sets the stage for future endeavors to address global educational needs.
