SCOLA's Mission

SCOLA's Mission Statement

SCOLA's Mission is to help the people of the world learn about one another; their cultures, their languages and their ideologies. SCOLA emphasizes the importance and effectiveness of modern information technology as a tool in overcoming barriers to global understanding and will remain at the forefront of its application.  



SCOLA is a non-profit educational organization based in McClelland, Iowa. SCOLA receives and re-transmits foreign TV programming from around the world and provides other foreign language resources, language lessons, and learning material on their website.

Universities, colleges, K-12 schools, cable systems, language schools and individual language learners use SCOLA foreign language resources for current events, language learning, and cultural studies.

SCOLA content is available via satellite, participating cable providers, and through web subscription services on their website. SCOLA also offers mobile apps for Apple and Android devices. SCOLA web subscription services and mobile apps require a SCOLA subscription to access. Colleges and universities who wish to use SCOLA resources must affiliate with SCOLA to access SCOLA's language resources.

SCOLA would be glad to provide you with a free trial membership to SCOLA. If you would like more details about how to become an individual subscriber or affiliate, please contact us.
