Our Mission

Apollo Education Group™, Inc. was founded in 1973 in response to a gradual shift in higher education demographics from a student population dominated by youth to one in which approximately half the students are adults and over 80 percent of whom work full-time. Apollo's founder, Dr. John Sperling, believed—and events proved him right—that lifelong employment with a single employer would be replaced by lifelong learning and employment with a variety of employers. Lifelong learning requires an institution dedicated solely to the education of working adults.

Today, Apollo Education Group™, Inc., through its subsidiaries, University of PhoenixApollo Global, College for Financial Planning, and Apollo Education Ventures has established itself as a leading provider of higher education programs for working adults by focusing on servicing the needs of the working adult.
