90 years of Quality Education Materials
The name “Scholastic” evokes warm memories from those who treasured their childhood experiences with us and trust among those who depend on us for quality materials today. For more than 90 years, we’ve been delivering outstanding books, magazines and educational programs directly to schools and families through channels that have become childhood traditions – Scholastic Book Fairs, monthly Book Clubs, and Scholastic News classroom magazines.
Extensive partnership with Educators
Today, we’re in more than 90% of schools in the U.S. – and our partnership with educators is something we cherish. More than half of the teachers in the U.S. have an active account with Scholastic, tapping into free offerings like our teaching resources, Scholastic.com activities and lesson plans, and ordering through Clubs Ordering Online (COOL), the Teacher Store Online and the Scholastic Store Online.
