GrowthX Academy is an escape hatch.
Over 43 million Americans have student loans, totaling $1.3 trillion in debt. Meanwhile, nearly 50% of recent college grads are underemployed.
So as college degrees lose synonymity with “job security” anddemands more hard skills, something has to give.
There are a few ways to improve education, given these challenges:
- Education should be less expensive
- Education should parity real-world experiences in the job market
- Education should be faster
Making Education Affordable
The average student loan debt is $37,172. The average 4-year institution is $25,000.
Spending 4 years in college, even if it were free, creates an opportunity cost of over $100,000 in lost wages.
GrowthX Academy costs $15,000, less than 1/2 the average college tuition while spanning just 3 months, vs the 48 demanded from a traditional university.

But Seth Godin reminds us, “There are no more good jobs where you’re told what to do.
GrowthX Academy is taught by entrepreneurs who have a. There is no theory, only frameworks. No long-form essays, only measurable results.
Making Education Fast
Fast isn’t the right word. Let’s try: immersive.

In immersive training environments, your brain has the opportunity toand perform at higher levels. In college, you’re basically waiting for the bell to ring.
GrowthX Academy is an immersive 12-week program that enables students to focus solely on developing skills, building a portfolio, and networking for their soon-to-begin career in technology.
As of this writing, we offer 3 distinct training programs:
There are thousands of buildings with bricks and walls and smart people inside, dispelling knowledge from one brain to the next.
So it isn’t about the what. It’s the why.
