Don't just take our word for it. Hear what grads are saying.

Still have questions? That's okay. We've got you covered.

Why choose Praxis over college?

Our program will help you gain the skills, context, and network that will set you up for success in the real world.

It is designed to challenge you and to prepare you for the real world. Unlike college, our goal is not to get you to graduation. It’s to help you discover work that makes you come alive—and to help you start strong. Our cost reflects another important value of ours, too: deliver more value than you take. Which is exactly what we aim to do. Because starting strong is hard enough as it is without student debt. But ultimately, the choice is up to you. Are you ready to break the mold?

How does the bootcamp work?

The bootcamp makes up the first six months of the program where you’ll discover career interests that fit your strengths, build valuable business skills, and create a portfolio of projects that will stand out on the job market and open up new opportunities.

The bootcamp is 100% remote, so you can do it from anywhere. It combines a project-based curriculum with bi-weekly live workshops and guidance from program coaches and experienced professionals that hold you accountable to your goals, not ours.

The bootcamp requires a 10-15 hour weekly time commitment that is flexible to your schedule.

What type of jobs are available through the program?

Participants land exciting opportunities at a variety of growing businesses and tech startups all across the country (and remote). Most of the roles are entry-level positions on the business side of a company (sales, marketing, operations) that are ideal for talented, hard working young people who can learn quickly and independently. All the opportunities that participants land are full-time and offer long-term growth opportunities. Graduates average a first-year salary of $50,000.

How much does tuition cost?

Tuition is $12,000—which covers the full cost of our program and job placement, in addition to lifetime membership in our community. Ultimately, we don’t want cost to stand in your way or cause unnecessary stress during your program experience. Which is why we also offer you the option to defer tuition until you graduate with a job. Plus, our tuition is backed by a full guarantee—if you don’t get hired within six months of completing the bootcamp, no matter what payment option you choose, you’ll get your money back.

Will I have to relocate for Praxis?

Most participants do relocate to growing cities across the country for their job opportunities. Don’t worry, we won’t force you to accept a job you’re unsure about or move to a new city you don’t want to. Our placement team partners with you throughout the process to help you find the best early-career opportunities that fit your interests.

What does it take to get accepted into the program?

We don’t care about your GPA, who your parents know, or your credentials. We’re seeking ambitious individuals who want to build a professional life they love and are capable of being positive contributors to our growing community. If you like to work, are intellectually curious, and have a little courage, we would love to get to know you better through the application process.
