Welcome to the fifthteenth year of the International University of Santa Claus, aka: School4Santas!  We are most roud to have have over 3300 Santas and Mrs Claus receive diplomas from our school  Designed for both Real Bearded and Theatrically bearded Santa, Professional and Volunteers, this is one of the most comprehensive schools offered.

DiscoverSanta2016LogoPlease know that we are having just 6 regional schools this year as most of thepast six months was spent producing “Discover Santa 2016” whch we are proud to say was the world’s largest-ever, convention for Santas and Mrs. Claus.

School4Santas, officially The International University of Santa Claus, has been seen and featured on NBC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, the Travel channel, the History Channel, in over a dozen documentaries and featured in the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times and over 800 other news articles, radio and television news stories. 

And because of those who have attended and their sharing with others, the school continues to be the most popular and educational training for Professional and Volunteer Santas and Mrs. Claus.

School4Santas (S4S) is different from other schools as the 16 hours of training are supported by a power point presentation.  Why a power point presentation?  Well, it is a proven fact Visual Aids coupled with lecture can improve learning by up to 400 percent (3M Corporation, 2001).  And 90 percent of information that comes to the brain is visual.*

behind1All new Students receive our 236-page course  book, “Behind the RedSuit,” and upon completition, a diploma recognizing their attendance.  First time attendees recieve a Bachelor Dimpoma in Santa Clausology.  Second time attemdees are Alumni and receive a Master’s Diploma.  Those attending more that twice receive Advanced Master’s Diplomas.   And everyone that attends the school or purchases our DVD course, or attends the convention is automatically entered into the”Red Suit Society”

**  Plans were to have five regional schools following the Discover Santa Convention.  However, due to only a few registrations for some of the schools, we had to cancel, Detroit, Denver and Seattle, and concentrate on just two schools, one on each coast.  Both the Tampa and Los Angeles Schools are confirmed and each has well over  twenty students registered.  We hope to have the cancelled schools re-schedule for next year.
