Your Guide to Socratic

Our mission is to make learning easier

In the service of that mission, the following principles guide our company, product, and community:

  1. 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.
  2. 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 content via our Creative Commons license.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
