A flexible path forward

You deserve better than being stuck in a classroom bored, racking up student debt, waiting to start your life, and hoping it will all pay off someday. So we designed an entirely new experience. Based on a fresh perspective. It’s already helped hundreds of people build the skills and network they need to succeed in the real world—and it can do the same for you, too. And we’ve broken down what we believe here.

At Praxis, you’ll control your future, not some outdated institution that is shielded from the real world.

Praxis is available online for anyone in the US with a WiFi connection. Our 6-month program launches new cohorts monthly—so you can get plugged into a strong community of peers. And by month seven, our grads are starting full-time jobs at great businesses while continuing to grow

So, what's the alternative?

The Praxis Approach

Below we’ve outlined beliefs that shape how we do business. And things we don’t believe. Praxis is built on these ideals. While college has lost its way, Praxis has a clear vision for the future. Here’s what we believe.

Your career is a discovery process

The days of spending 40 years at one company doing the same type of work while trying to climb the corporate ladder are over. Your professional interests should change over time.

Playing it safe is risky

Most people will still tell you to go to college because it’s seen as the safe and secure path. If you want to thrive in your career, there’s nothing riskier than doing what everyone else does.

The degree is dead

Bold statement, sure. But it’s true. You don’t need a degree to thrive in a world that is changing for the better.

You’re an individual, not a statistic

Don’t worry about how you compare to others. Focus on your own development, growth, and decisions. You have one life. Make it your own.

Exchanging value is the best way up

The best way to get what you want in life is to figure out how to help other people get what they want.

Show, don’t tell

If you want to build a reputation as someone who is interesting, reliable, and capable- show your work.

Criticize by creating

It’s easy to criticize things we don’t like. But what’s more difficult is creating something. Get out there and create something better.

Get some skin in the game

We believe skin in the game leads to better decisions and better aligned incentives. Which is why we also back our entire program with a tuition guarantee.

How the program works

12 Months of Self-directed education with real-world experience

Instead of homework or exams, you’ll learn how business works, explore how your interests map to different career paths, build valuable hard and soft skills through hands-on projects, workshops, and professional coaching. 

You’ll also be guided through our proven, step-by-step process to make the strongest possible impression with each company you’d like to work with. Your Praxis placement advisors will be with you every step of the way until you land a full-time apprenticeship job offer in a role and company that excites you.
