Mission

 Why The Quad?

The Literal Meaning

A quad is a place of gathering, an on-campus destination for collaboration, organization, recreation, procrastination, and the occasional, pamphlet-friendly photo op.

If the internet is like a giant college campus—filled with information, ideas, and oddballs—The Quad is a space just for you—a place to channel those ideas into knowledge and action.

The Latin Meaning

Quad comes from the Latin root, quattuor, meaning “four.” Obviously, we didn't have to break out the Latin, but we like how smart it makes us sound, so just go with it, OK? Anyway, with the massive growth of online college, we acknowlege that today's classroom may not have borders or walls. But as far as we're concerned, this classroom does have pillars—four of them to be exact.

 The Four Pillars

We believe that in order for education to be meaningful, inspiring, and lasting, it must be personal. With that, we invite you to make The Quad your very own, a place where you can learn while you live, work, and play.
