Our Mission

Inspiring through Accessibility 

To inspire as many students as possible, who previously felt limited, to venture further into Classics. We want to encourage our students to take their Classical Education to the next stage be it through a degree, another online course, or personal education. We want to offer our students the tools to find the right means for them.

We recognised that for many students who are not offered Classical Subjects in their school they rely on outreach programmes and summer schools to access Classical Education. We felt passionately that those students should not miss out on those opportunities. By widening participation in this way we have created a sustainable platform where this education is not only readily available but possible.

Our Commitment to Care

At Academus, we are committed to helping and protecting our students to the best of our abilities for the duration of their time with us. Our high teaching standards place their wellbeing above at the forefront of our classes and ensure a safe and welcoming teaching environment.

All our courses will be delivered through the virtual learning platform Moodle which is a secure, password-protected platform. As an online education environment Moodle is committed to student safety and as a result, adheres to the strictest security standards. Access to the Academus Moodle page is strictly monitored by our Administrators as is all communication on the site.

 

At Academus we strive for excellence and as a result, all our staff must go through a rigorous selection process. In line with our Academus Standards, all our staff must pass an enhanced DBS check, and go through extensive training including in-depth SEN training.
