Our mission is to make learning easier
In the service of that mission, the following principles guide our
company, product, and community:
We build for students
We focus on the student and seek to do
what’s best for them. As the world changes, what we build will
change to adapt; our mission will stay the same.
Everyone should have access
Great teaching & high-quality learning
materials should be available to everyone, everywhere, for free.
To that end, anyone can use, edit, and distribute Socratic

Teaching. Not facts
Socratic seeks to empower the world by
providing access to content that teaches students how to think
about and apply concepts, so that they can go on to learn and
excel as their pursuits increase in difficulty.
We are all teachers; we are all students
Learning is a lifelong journey we take together.
Pedigree and experience don’t matter; a deep desire to learn and
help others learn does. Anyone who shares this desire is welcome
to contribute to Socratic.
