Andy Schlafly

Hi, my name is Andy Schlafly, the primary author of these lectures. You can view a list of the colleges and scholarships obtained by students of these courses below.

I have taught 26 courses in two decades to high school-aged students, and was an adjunct professor at a law school before that. Several popular homeschool curriculum programs grant credit to my courses. Many of my students have won college scholarships, and after taking my courses some completed college in only 3 years (see list below).

You can reach me by posting messages on my page for User_talk:Aschlafly. The primary initial motivation for Conservapedia was to make available a free, online resource helpful to students. My Facebook account is at Andy Schlafly, my X account (formerly Twitter) is @SchlaflyAndy, and my TruthSocial account is @AndySchlafly.

Teaching Record

Andy Schlafly at Columbia University

I have enjoyed personally teaching hundreds homeschooled teenagers in 26 courses over the past 20 years (since 2002).[1] These classes have been open at low cost to everyone, including persons with learning disabilities. My courses covered the material for a full-year public school course in just one semester, meeting only one day a week. Now taught on Conservapedia, student achievement increases even more here due to the "Hawthorne effect" (one's work improves when there is review by others).

When I taught a one-semester course to my students in Economics, I gave a final exam that imitated the grading scale of the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exam. A substantial percentage of my students, even though they were at the high school and even the 8th grade levels, earned passing marks on the college level scale. Every one of my students who took the CLEP exam based on my course passed it to earn college credit.

The SAT II U.S. History course is the College Board exam for students who excel in this subject. A score above 600 usually places the student in about the upper 50% of college-bound high school students who have done particularly well in U.S. History.

After completing my U.S. History course, which met at only a tiny fraction of the time and cost as public school history courses, ten of my students for that course scored over 600 on the SAT II U.S. History exam. One of my students attained a perfect score of 800.

A student and longtime Conservapedian just scored two perfect 800s on the all-important SAT I critical reading exam. He is one of the relatively few teenagers nationwide to attain a perfect score on that exam twice in a row.

My homeschooled students have often done charity work in the United States (such as helping at a local foundation for the blind and teaching at an inner city school in Newark, NJ). My students have also worked in impoverished areas of Mexico, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras and South Africa. Some homeschool students and families have done charitable and missionary work in undisclosed communist or Muslim nations.

Entry improvement project

Transgender agenda project

The transgender agenda is moving fast through American politics and law, without a good source of information about it free of liberal bias. As of June 22, 2024, Category:transgender has 49 entries. The goal is to develop 100 entries in this category by June 30, 2024.
