What is PraxisPraxis is a one-year startup apprenticeship program and career accelerator for young people who want more than college. We combine a 6-month, online bootcamp with a 6-month, full-time, paid apprenticeship at a high-growth startup.
What types 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.
Will my son or daughter have to relocate for placement?Most participants relocate to growing cities across the country for their job opportunities. We won’t force your son or daughter to accept a job they’re unsure about or move to a new city they don’t want to, but most find this to be their optimal path. Think of it this way- it might be the shot to get the kid out of the house without crippling student loans. Don’t miss it.
How much does tuition cost?Tuition is $12,000—which covers the full cost of our program and job placement, in addition to lifetime access to our community and hiring network. You can pay tuition upfront or finance it. We’ve worked with our lending partner, Climb Credit, to create a loan specifically for our apprentices which offers a six-month grace period once you start the program before you begin monthly payment. Plus, most apprentices start their new full-time jobs by month 7 of the program, so you can expect to earn more than the cost of tuition before you graduate.
What does my son or daughter need to be accepted?We don’t care about your GPA, who you know, or how much you’ve donated to the Alumni fund. 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 your son or daughter likes to work, is intellectually curious, and has a little courage, we would love for them to apply.
If you're considerating attending, it's worth a listen.
Point of View from a Praxis Alum and Parent
What other parents are saying...
My son described one week of Praxis as equal to one year of University. After watching him bored with Freshman year of college, I could not be happier we discovered Praxis.
The program itself was very impactful in getting Taylor ready for this leap into the unknown and they were able to get Taylor a job in New York City with a $5 billion advertising/media company.
When Sarah said she wanted to quit her nursing home job to pursue Praxis training and apprenticeship, we were skeptical, but we were thrilled when she was hired her on permanently after the completing the program.
