Saylor Academy

The Saylor Academy was started in 2008. Since then we have amassed a library of over 300 courses and constructed many career-centered programs, created by over 500 instructors that support millions of students. The site averages over 200,000 hits per month, which we believe demonstrates the high level of interest in this model. Our unique competency-based platform, coupled with our partnerships, makes our content offerings unique and well positioned in a confusing market. The Saylor Academy's mission is to remove the barriers of cost, geography, and time; enable the underemployed to reach a higher standard of living; provide a pathway for the dreamers to immerse themselves in advanced fields of science and technology; and guide the transformers to a more fulfilling career.

Saylor is a participant in the Alternative Credit Project (ACPE) and submitted and received approval for 14 courses to be a part of the program. Saylor's accepted ACPE courses are noted with the following number format: ACPE-0000, with numbers ranging from 0001 to 0138. To guarantee transfer of credit a student must select the ACPE version of the course found under 'Alternative Credit Project Ecosystem' in the National Guide.
