Applied Scholastics:
Breaking Down the Barriers
to Real Education

Applied Scholastics specializes in empowering educators with innovative training methods focused on effective learning strategies. Applied Scholastics' unique curriculum begins by equipping students with the foundational skills necessary for successful learning. Watch this video to learn more about Applied Scholastics and Study Technology.

“Applied Scholastics and your Study Technology materials, based on the works of L. Ron Hubbard, address not only learning difficulties, but they also help students become lifelong learners. I have experienced this through personal training myself and use of the technology with students, as well as interaction with many other teachers and students worldwide who use this effective strategy.”

What Is Applied Scholastics?

Applied Scholastics was started in 1972 by a group of educators searching for methods to help salvage students falling through the education system’s cracks. The issues these educators faced are many of the same as we face today: supporting students facing academic challenges, those at risk, and students with learning disabilities to meet educational standards while simultaneously fostering a love of learning in students who have yet to realize their full academic potential. The goal is to create learning environments where every student has the opportunity to succeed. These professional educators found the solution to these issues in Study Technology, an educational methodology developed by author and educator L. Ron Hubbard.

Fundamental to Applied Scholastics programs is the premise that successful education is far more than just being able to read with the end result of passing an examination. It includes the ability to understand and utilize the information one studies. To this end, one gains the skill to “think with” the data in order to use it to better one's life.

For over five decades, Applied Scholastics staff and representatives have worked in partnership with government agencies, educators, schools, corporations and community groups and parents to implement Study Technology, bringing hope of a world free of illiteracy and the possibility of lifelong learning.

What Is Study Technology?

Study Technology (sometimes referred to as Study Tech) consists of a vast body of data and research in the field of education.

The "Technology" in "Study Technology" does not refer to computers or electronic devices. Instead, it refers to a research-based system that can assist people in studying or learning any subject—it is a vital missing step in modern education.

Study Technology helps students develop critical thinking skills. It motivates and improves the ability of students to learn and achieve proficiency no matter the subject under study. Study Technology can be applied to anything: homework, homeschooling, teaching, tutoring, sports, work, reading—it applies to all aspects of life.

Study Technology provides the tools and practical guidelines to learn and study efficiently so that people can apply what they learn in school and not just repeat it back to pass a test. While passing a test is important, it is not nearly as important as students being able to use what they've learned. If somebody can't use what they have learned in school, they will fail—at work, in relationships, and ultimately in life. They may turn to drugs, dishonest behavior, or other methods to hide from their troubles. Study Technology provides a much better route out.

Study Technology consists of an exact system that teaches people how to learn and can be used by anybody. Study Technology includes the identification of specific learning barriers and workable methods to overcome them.

“As long as children and young men and women find pleasure in study, they will continue studying throughout life—and upon that depends their happiness.”
—L. Ron Hubbard
