Stoic philosophy, the great secret of Western Civilization, teaches you how to change your life. Excellence really is within your reach. Now, you can learn what Stoics have always known: serenity, compassion, and joy.
Academic philosophy emphasizes abstract intellectual problems and arcane conundrums that no one ever solves and no one ever wins. Stoic philosophy doesn't do that. It never did. Instead, it gives you the keys to living life well, in good times and bad.
The College was founded on the 5th of July, 2008, as an open Internet school to encourage a life-long pursuit of philosophy as the love of wisdom. For the Stoic philosopher, this is, and always has been, the foundation for daily practice in the art of living. The College offers a Stoic Essential Studies course (4 months) and the Stoic Philosopher program (one year) through the Marcus Aurelius School. Graduates of both programs will receive certificates of completion suitable for framing.
Admissions. It is our policy to accept all students without regard to gender, race, religion, or nationality. For additional information go to the menu at left and click on Admissions for the Stoic Essential Studies course and the Marcus Aurelius School for the Stoic Philosopher program.
Methodology of the College is based primarily upon the self-education of distance learning, but each student will be assigned a Mentor to work with him or her in becoming a knowledgeable and practicing Stoic. Mentors and students correspond by email, and these exchanges between student and Mentor provide an opportunity to examine any issues, questions, or problems that arise.
