With a motto to 'reach out and reach all', APOSS follows the principle of freedom to learn i.e., what to learn, when to learn,

The A.P State Open School shall provide ample access to sustainable learner-centric quality education, skill upgradation and training to learners by using innovative technologies and methodologies of Open and Distance Learning (ODL).
I am very happy to announce that APOSS has reached an important mile stone in its pursuit to reach out to the drop-outs of the main stream education by starting the SSC (APOSS) course in the year 2008-09. Now the time has come to leap ahead with introduction of Intermediate (APOSS) during this year 2010-11. On this momentous time my thoughts go to Ugadi day of 1991 when APOSS was started with a tiny step when founding fathers aimed at enhancing transition rate from Class V to Class VI by attracting drop-outs to Open School through Open and Distance mode of Learning.
