Scholastic Credo and Editorial Platform

Scholastic’s books and educational materials inspire students to:

  • Cultivate their minds to utmost capacity.


  • Become familiar with our cultural heritage.
  • Strive for excellence in creative expression in all fields of learning, literature, and art.


  • Enlarge students' concern for and understanding of today's world.
  • Help build a society free of prejudice and hate, and dedicated to the highest quality of life in community and nation.

We strive to present the clearest explanation of current events and encourage literary appreciation ­— enriching the lives of all children with the joy and power of reading.

We believe in:

  • The worth and dignity of each individual.
  • Respect for the diverse groups in our multicultural society.
  • The right of each individual to live in a wholesome environment.
  • High moral and spiritual values.


  • The democratic way of life, with basic liberties — and responsibilities — for everyone.
  • Representative government and even-handed justice that maintains equality of rights for all people.
  • Cooperation and understanding among all people for the peace of the world.
  • The basic freedoms of all individuals — we oppose discrimination of any kind on the basis of age, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or national origin.
  • The fair discussion of all sides of the issues of our times — with deep respect for facts and logical thinking — in our books, classroom magazines, and educational materials used in schools and homes.
