Ena Stanley has been nominated three times for the Regulus Award in Education. and was the first person to receive NCGR’s Level IV Certification in the field of education. She started her personal study of astrology in 1968 and started her formal study in the late 1970’s with Beverly Farrell, PMAFA. Her education went on through the first half of the 1980’s with several noted astrologers, including intense studies with, Zipporah Dobyns and Joan Negus.

In January of 1986, Ena began her career as a teacher and built a curriculum to accommodate certification programs. She taught at Southern Oregon State College, 1986-1989; College of the Mainland (Galveston County, Texas), 1990-1993; Gulf Coast Chapter NCGR, 1994-1995 and CALCampus, an exclusively on-line community college, January 1995—Spring, 1997. 

In July of 1997, Ena and Ed Perrone created and opened the first cyberspatial astrological school through an experimental contract with NCGR; but upon realizing the broad potential of this medium, they decided not to remain exclusive. Subsequently Online College of Astrology was born.

By 2008, the term “online” was no longer unique, so a contest was organized to select a newer and more appropriate name for the school. The International Academy of Astrology was decided upon. IAA is a vocational school, dedicated to offering the serious astrology student a wide-ranging and comprehensive education. Many distinguished astrologers have contributed to its curriculum and it is respected in the astrological community for its multiplicity—no one particular model or belief is the focus, giving each student the tools to explore any number of factions. 

Ena claims to be IAA’s “gate keeper.” This translates into a devotion to the daily duties that keep IAA running smoothly.
