In 2018, Sophia became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Strategic Education Inc (SEI), a national leader in online education. SEI is the parent company of Capella University and Strayer University, regionally accredited online universities. Since 2012, Sophia has developed and launched 42 ACE CREDIT® recommended courses and served more than 150,000 learners. Sophia is helping students and teachers in all fifty states and over two hundred countries and territories. Sophia Learning is committed to providing access to high-quality college-level learning for working adults. Sophia Pathways is an individualized academic program that allows students to learn and demonstrate mastery of postsecondary competencies.

In partnership with accredited higher education institutions, receive college credit toward an undergraduate degree. The Sophia Pathways program recognizes that students learn in a variety of ways. Every concept is taught with many forms of instruction to enable students to learn how they learn best. Sophia Learning programs are also self-paced, allowing students to work around their busy schedules and move ahead at their own pace when they are ready. Finally, the Sophia Pathways program offers convenient online learning at a lower cost than many traditional college courses. Hundreds of colleges and universities accept Sophia’s ACE Credit®- and DEAC-recommended courses.

The American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE Credit®) has evaluated and recommended college credit for 42 of Sophia’s online courses for college credit. These courses are eligible to transfer to many different colleges and universities.

The DEAC is a national accrediting organization that evaluates distance education curriculum. The Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education recognize the DEAC as a trusted distance education authority.

The Continents States University partnered with Sophia Learning to provide self-paced alternative education to students. Students may choose to take these accredited courses. After receiving a passing score, students may choose to transfer these courses to The Continents States University. Those who would like to take such classes will be eligible for credit transfer.
