Check out stories from people just like you, who went to school (or back to school) and hear about their successes. If they can do it, you can too!


There are several reasons why people think that school is not for them. Most of these reasons fall into five main buckets. Don’t think you can’t afford it or have enough time? There are always ways to make it work. We have solutions for you.


This is where you take the first step to creating your game plan. All you have to do is answer a few easy questions about yourself and then we’ll give you a plan with all the steps you need to reach your fullest potential through education.

3) ACT

Now it’s time to put your plan into action! Create a goal date for each section of your plan and strive to check each item off the list by that date. As you move through the plan, we’ll track your progress on the timeline above. Focus on each item as it comes and you’ll be enrolled in school in no time.

Why should society feel responsible only for the education of children, and not for the education of all adults of every age?
Erich Fromm


Once you have your customized plan, join us on Facebook so you can share your milestones and successes (and, hey, who are we kidding, even your frustrations!) with others who are pursuing their dreams through education too. By pulling together and encouraging each other, you’ll reach your goals even faster and have more fun in the process.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
Mark Twain
