Saylor Academy

Saylor Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. The Academy was established in 1999 by Michael J. Saylor because he had a very simple, very earnest, and very bold idea: Education should be free. We believe that barriers of cost, time, and geography should not stand in the way of access to higher education or quality, effective credentials. Saylor Academy courses are provided via a CC BY 3.0 license.
