In the 1940s, Scholastic entered the book club business.
In the 1960s, international publishing locations were added in England (1964), New Zealand (1964) and Sydney (1968). Also in the 1960s, Scholastic entered the book publishing business.
In the 1980s, Scholastic entered the book fair business.
In February 2012, it bought Weekly Reader Publishing from Reader's Digest Association, and announced in July that year that it planned to discontinue separate issues of Weekly Reader magazines after more than a century of publication, and co-branded the magazines as "Scholastic News/Weekly Reader".
