Scholastic Australia Pty Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Scholastic Corporation (NASDAQ:SCHL), the world’s largest publisher and distributor of children’s books and a leader in educational technology and children’s media for over 90 years. Scholastic Australia has partnered with global solution providers and extended its distribution reach to include technology products and accessories.
For 30 years Scholastic has distributed leading technology products and services to major retail, commercial, Apple, and education markets nationally.

Scholastic resellers are diverse and provide a unique business proposition via their high-touch relationships in their chosen markets. Scholastic maintains precise distribution operations and high customer satisfaction levels through its Australian Distribution Centre. Resellers can expect excellence in customer service and sales support from a large national sales force of key Account Managers, specialist support from product and licensing teams, and access to our Scholastic e-Commerce B2B Reseller Portal.
