Mark Kislingbury Academy of Court Reporting Staff

Founded by Mark Kislingbury, a world-renowned professional court reporter and captioner, the Mark Kislingbury Academy was developed to, unlike most court reporting schools, teach writing that uses as few strokes as possible versus writing out every word phonetically. We believe this teaching method creates a higher student success rate and the opportunity for graduates to pursue excellence in the numerous career opportunities that are available to them, including, but not limited to official court reporting, freelance court reporting, CART providing, broadcast captioning and more.

School Philosophy

At the Mark Kislingbury Academy of Court Reporting, we institute a two-pillared learning system that is founded on Mr. Kislingbury’s Magnum Steno Theory (learning to write short) and Speed building (learning how to practice at high speeds). Through our teaching methods, our goal is to increase the graduation and success rate for professional court reporting students nationwide. Excellence in training and results are the key philosophies the Mark Kislingbury Academy of Court Reporting has been founded on.
