Testimonials for Applied Scholastics

With Applied Scholastics training, teachers learn to recognize the three barriers to study and simple tools their students can use to overcome them.

Since 1972, Applied Scholastics has provided effective and workable educational services to youth and adults around the world. During those decades, Applied Scholastics programs have been observed and studied by educators and have been published in numerous research papers and case studies.

But the results of our programs are also expressed in the words and voices of educators, parents and students who have experienced Study Technology for themselves. The following is but a small sample of the results they have achieved by applying this technology:


“Trained with the Applied Scholastics Study Technology, I now have a method of learning which can be used by all students and adults who wish to get something truly meaningful from study. Now I am using the techniques in my classroom and the retention rate of vocabulary and basic sight words is tremendous. My students are the proof that this really works.” —L.C., Elementary School Teacher


Great Success

“To me, the greatest success of this curriculum is when an at-risk student who tried hard and failed uses it and achieves great success.” —P.Q., Middle School Teacher


Students Who Can Apply What They Have Learned

“As a teacher of English as a Second Language in a large inner-city high school, I have successfully used the Hubbard Study Technology to help my students become more able and acquire a greater understanding of the lessons they are taught. Other teachers and administrators in my school have noticed the change and improvement in my students’ test scores and speaking ability, as well as the atmosphere in my classroom. Their praise has validated my application of Mr. Hubbard’s Study Technology and its goals: that being a good teacher produces students who can apply what they have learned.” —L.K., High School Teacher


Learning Can Be Fun

“As a former student of the ‘old school,’ having this form of learning how to learn taught to me was great. I remembered many of my own days in studying and at the end of the day not remembering or understanding any more than I did before. I can see how learning could have been more fun and productive.

“Now through this course I have learned the barriers and how to deal with them. With this new knowledge I can teach and help others. Learning can be fun and you can learn about anything you want to learn about!” —Tutor, Boys & Girls Club


My Students Learn Quickly

“Using L. Ron Hubbard’s Study Technology in my teaching produces amazing results. My students learn quickly and retain instead of memorize.

“I have used the Hubbard Study Technology for two quarters and have met with tremendous success. The school administration was so impressed with the results that they have given me three months leave of absence and funding to get more training in the technology developed by Mr. Hubbard.” —C.K., Technology Institute Professor


New Precise Technology

“The basic premise of the Hubbard Study Technology is that if a student is succeeding you let him or her get on with it, but that if the student is in trouble (as more and more students today are) there is a new precise technology for solving that difficulty. This is a new look. L. Ron Hubbard has been bold enough to assert that for any learning problem there is a workable solution. Thousands of people trained in his Study Technology know this is true and feel they now have in their hands the missing tool necessary for both comprehension and the ability to apply in any chosen field of study.” —B.F., Associate Professor of English


Real-life Usage

“Study Technology quickly moves students from abstract theory to real-life usage. The information confirms what educators know to be the best way of learning and teaching. Many educators have told me that they wished they had had this information from the beginning of their teacher training.” —G.G., PhD


Opened Up My Eyes

“When I first entered education, I didn’t have the tools of Study Technology. I used to wonder why my students wouldn’t listen or didn’t seem to have the ability to concentrate. Sometimes they just couldn’t grasp things, no matter how much I explained it. Then I discovered Study Technology and the effects of the misunderstood word and it opened up my eyes. I could see the answer to all the problems of my class. I introduced it to them and their whole attitude changed. They became happy and eager students. They didn’t want to leave at the end of the day.” —S.G., School Teacher


The Most Powerful Educational Tool

“In my fourteen years of teaching, the most powerful educational tool that I have come across has been the Study Technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard. The success of the Study Technology with math workshops led me to working for the last five years with this district, training experienced teachers and new teachers how to implement the tools and methods offered by Applied Scholastics. Because of the test score data, the district has promoted the district-wide implementation of several Applied Scholastics tools.” —C.K., Professor of Education
