The International University of Santa Claus
World’s Largest Santa School

Celebrating 17 years and over 4,500 graduates

All 2020 Schools have been cancelled.

But just like our kids and Grand kids, you can still take the  IUSC Home Study Course

Hopes were to move the June and July Schools to August.  But with recent new cases of the Covid-19 virus, and expanded restrictions and lock-downs, it is quite apparent that hosting any schools this year will be almost impossible. 

It is important that we not take any chances with the health of any Santa or Mrs. Claus during these times. 

  Plans are to put everything on hold and after Christmas begin rescheduling all schools, in the same cities, for Spring and Summer of 2021.  I am also hoping to reschedule the Mediterranean cruise for next summer, 2021.

For those who were still thinking of attending a school, you still have the option of ordering the IUSC Home Study course.   It is the full School4Santas program, recorded live last summer in Orlando.  Details are below.

For those who registered for a school, I am truly sorry that we had to cancel again.  Here are three options:

  1. You can have your registration fees held for a school to be taught next year.  My priority is to schedule new 2021 schools in any of the cities I have had to cancel.  
  2. You can receive the complete Home Study Course which includes all 16 hours of video and the course book, plus your personalized diploma, and the difference will be refunded to you.  Additionally I am adding a couple of new video segments that were not in the school.  The cost for the Home Study Course is $199 and the optional Advanced session, “Making the Moment,” can be added for $99.  Details can be found at:
  3. Or I can send you a full refund for the school.

Please let me know what you wish me to do.  And should you have another suggestion, please let me know and I would be glad to share it with all registered for the school.  I can be contacted via email at:

Last summer I was pleased to present the 4,500th diploma at our Orlando School. It is so hard to believe that in 17 years over 4,500 Santas and Mrs. Claus have received diplomas and certifications from School4Santas.

I am also proud to say that last July we recorded the three days of our Orlando classes (22 hours) and they have now been edited and produced into MP3 files which are now available as our IUSC Home Study Course.  It is the full school and can  be viewed from home, and reviewed as many times as you like. 

 IUSC Home Study Course Now AVAILABLE!

16 hours of MP$ video divided into eight sessions, plus our course book, “Behind the Red Suit,” and a personalized Diploma.

NEW 3rd DAY OF SCHOOL, “MAKING THE MOMENT!”  2019 also saw the creation our my new segment of School4Santas, an optional third day, “Advanced Training Session.”

Titled, “Making the Moment,”  this session is  for those who have completed our two-day school, in person or through home study, and offers special emphasis on improving and enhancing your visits and appearances, and developing those, very special, moments. 

It includes additional training and work on special events, posing, and making any Santa activity even more special for your clients.   Also included is the session workbook, “Making the Moment,” which includes almost 200 sample photos and diagrams.”

School4Santas is designed for both Real Bearded and Theatrically bearded Santas, Mrs. Claus, Holiday Professionals and Volunteers, this is one of the most comprehensive schools offered, and the number one school, taught by a professional Santa, who shares his knowledge from with almost 50-years in the industry. 

School for Santas, 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.

Yes, there are many good and great Santa schools and training programs out there. but most are only presented once a year and always in the same city.  And they always seem to be presented just a month or two before the Holiday Season.

School4Santas (S4S) is different from other schools, as it travels to cities across the Nation.  While we cannot always be in your hometown, you will find that we will travel to regional locations that are generally closer to you than traveling to other schools.

The school is arranged with 16 hours of training and lecture, 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 the 15th Anniversary edition of our 246-page course book, “Behind the Red Suit,” and upon completion, everyone receives a diploma recognizing their attendance.

First time attendees receive a Bachelor Diploma in Santa Clausology.  Second time attendees are Alumni and receive a Master’s Diploma.  Those attending more than 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”

** Each year 8 to 12 regional schools are scheduled.  Some are based on the large number of Santas living near the school location.  Others are presented because a local Santa organization invited us to come to their region.  In all cases, we need to have a minimum of 12 registered attendees for the school in order to cover the costs of producing the school, renting he meeting facilities, et
