There’s a high schooler in our homeschool. I’m not sure how I feel about it. It’s been altogether too fast. I can remember vividly how quickly my high school years flew by. (I can’t imagine how it felt for my mother.) Early on I wasn’t sure what I would do post-FHS, but I was certain it was involve college. Back then, we didn’t even hear the phrase college alternative. Because if you didn’t go to college, how could you ever succeed in life, right?!
But college isn’t the only choice, is it?
For high school kids, especially now in our age of technology, there are so many great options.
College and work are not the only options.
I’ve been thinking about college alternative options more and more because of my own son.
Recently, I discovered a college alternative that sounds really really amazing.
It’s called Praxis.
Praxis is an apprenticeship and education program.
Students spend nine months working, learning, and refining their skills to figure out where they should aim their careers.
Immediately, this sounded like a great option and I wanted to learn more about it.
Lucky for me (and you!) I got to interview a participant that went through the Praxis program–and she’s doing amazing things!
I was compensated for my time in exchange for writing an honest review about Praxis.
