We asked Charles about his decision to apply to Praxis and this is what he said:
While I’ve always been an avid learner and an excellent student, I was never satisfied with the traditional classroom. I always found the most rewarding challenges and my deepest learning outside of academics. As I progressed from each grade to the next, I felt more and more like a growing animal trapped inside a shrinking cage. When I realized that it was time to unleash my inner free-thinking, sky-shooting entrepreneur, I left high school to join Praxis.
Praxis is unique in that it offers me the tools I need to grow as a professional. This includes crafting my personal brand, leaning how to leverage different tools to further my career, and building healthy professional habits. Not to mention, I will gain an incredible amount of experience and hard skills from working with my business partner. I do all of this while also participating in a personalized curriculum geared toward creating a better me. Why spend the most enthusiastic years of my life sitting in classrooms when I can be growing into the world-shaping businessman I’ve always wanted to be?
