Considering Great Oaks?

For Parents Whose Son/Daughter is Considering Great Oaks

Still thinking that college is the only path?  Read this article from The Atlantic.

Students who are ready for careers AND college.  That's our goal, and that's what happens at Great Oaks campuses every day.

Students who come to Great Oaks want to be able to learn with their hands as well as their minds.  They spend half the day in their career labs and half the day in academic classes.

Many of our graduates leave with college credits.  With their background, experience, and skills learned in their career program, they leave us with options--to continue their education or begin a career right away.
