Abstract:

Good-bye, Old School. Hello, Bold School! In 2005, Maya Frost and her husband sold everything and left their suburban American lifestyle behind in order to have an adventure abroad. The tricky part: they had to shepherd their four teenage daughters through high school and into college. This hilarious and conspiratorial how-to handbook describes the affordable, accessible, and stunningly advantageous options they stumbled upon that any American student can leverage to get an outrageously relevant global education. Ready to ditch the drama of the traditional hypercompetitive SAT/AP/GPA path' Meet the bold American students who are catapulting into the global economy at twenty with a red-hot college diploma, sizzling 21st-century skills, a blazing sense of direction'and no debt. You'll discover: - the one thing preventing your student from blasting forward - why Advanced Placement isn't so advanced - why international programs fail to provide a truly global education - the most critical time for your student to study abroad - the best exchange program in the world ($3,000 or less per year) - the strategic way to fast-forward through high school - how to maximize a family sabbatical - how to live the life of your dreams abroad'and save thousands for college Packed with myth-busting facts, laughable loopholes, insider insights, astonishing success stories, and poignant tales from the Frost daughters themselves, this inspiring romp is guaranteed to get you cheering. From the Trade Paperback edition.
