Real life takes skills that you probably didn’t learn in high school—get the tools you need to succeed in college and beyond.
We’ll show you where to start, help you figure out where you want to go and how to navigate life’s uncertainties in between.
Reaching your goals starts with learning how to work smarter. Learn to work efficiently, get things done and make the best use of your time.
Walk away with a portfolio of real projects that help you build skills in areas that interest you, while demonstrating what you’ve learned to potential colleges and employers.
Your Year On community will become your support system—the intense experiences of this unique year forms bonds that last far longer than the program.
You’ll connect with mentors, professionals and Year On alumni in industries you’re interested in who can give you valuable advice, guidance, and opportunities.
Together, we’ll develop a Personal Pathway Plan—a customized plan that helps you stay accountable, manage your goals and find success as you transition to college life.

“It’s not just the skills you’re learning, but it’s confidence; stuff you have to figure out yourself. People skills; you’re getting to know yourself better. You can’t really teach habits, and personal branding. But the way UnCollege set it up, you’re guiding us to teach ourselves.”
Operations Coordinator, Covo
“When you are at Uncollege you are confronted with your own potential, you are forced to embrace your otherness through travel, your dreams, your small ideas for innovation and are given time to hone in on what exactly that means for yourself and the others around you.”
“For some people, school isn’t even in the question—they find learning just through experiences. For me, I feel like I can learn what I learn in school, but experiences like this have taught me as much if not more, just about life in general. It isn’t necessarily a book-smart kind of learning, but more like a worldview of learning.”
