about usTheBestSchools.org is a leading resource for campus and online education. Our aim is to help you gain the knowledge, skills, and credentials you need to achieve personal happiness and career success.

Successful careers depend on full-time, well-paid, satisfying jobs. In fact, a good job is one of the best markers of personal happiness. But in turbulent economic times, good jobs can be hard to come by.

To get a good job, you need an edge. That edge comes through further education. However, simply learning new stuff is not enough. You need to learn the right stuff. This is where we come in.

If you are still deciding on the right career, we are here to provide guidance through our career articles. If you know what you want to do, we are here to help find the best school and degree program for you through our ranking articles. Additionally, our feature, resources, and magazine articles offer interesting insights and perspectives about education generally.

Wherever you are in your education, we will find the best school for you. You may not have four years to spend on a college degree. In that case, we can help you find a rewarding two-year associate’s degree program.

Or you may have more time for education, but not at a traditional campus. Online degree programs offered by traditional as well as online colleges allow you to earn a college degree at your own pace from home or just about any location. Bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees are now all available through online schools.
