Apollo Education Group, Inc. was founded in 1973 in response to a gradual shift in higher education demographics from a student population dominated by youth to one in which approximately half the students are adults and over 80 percent of whom work full-time. Apollo’s founder, John Sperling, believed—and events proved him right—that lifelong employment with a single employer would be replaced by lifelong learning and employment with a variety of employers. Lifelong learning requires an institution dedicated solely to the education of working adults.
Apollo Education Group is playing a leadership role in higher education and pioneers higher education for the working learner through its technological investment, advanced learning methodologies and an international reach. Apollo continues to search for opportunities to expand in the educational landscape.
Quality academic programs, qualified faculty, and a comprehensive student experience enable Apollo Education Group’s schools to be respected institutions of higher education. Many of Apollo Education Group’s schools and institutions throughout the world are also accredited by prestigious local accrediting bodies within their respective geographic or programmatic areas of instruction.
Since 1973, Apollo Education Group, Inc., has been creating opportunities for students to reach their full potential while enriching society as a whole. Today, Apollo Education Group continues to strengthen and capitalize on its position as a leading provider of quality, accessible education for individuals around the world.
Apollo’s mission of educating working learners on a global scale is leveraged by the strength of each of its education brands that span the globe. Every one of the brands strives to meet the changing needs of today’s learners through technological investment, advanced learning methodologies and innovation. As a result, Apollo has been able to provide strong academic outcomes and career enhancement opportunities to students, as well as help the global education system evolve into one that addresses the needs of a wide and varied population.
Apollo is committed to leading the way in meeting the needs of working learners and producing the graduates necessary to achieve the world’s collective educational goals.
