Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Youll discover:

• the one thing preventing your student from blasting forward

• why Advanced Placement isnt 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.

Synopsis:

This inspirational how-to handbook illustrates how blending meaningful study abroad with personalized learning gives students extraordinary opportunities to reach new heights.

Synopsis:

In the summer of 2005, Maya Frost and her husband decided to sell everything and leave their suburban American lifestyle behind. The unusual part: they had four teenage daughters. While living abroad and shepherding their kids through high school and college, the Frosts stumbled upon a number of affordable, accessible, and stunningly advantageous strategies that any student can use to leap ahead of those on the traditional track.

This conspiratorial how-to handbook illustrates how blending meaningful study abroad with personalized learning gives students extraordinary opportunities to reach new heights. Readers will laugh out loud at the lunacy of the current college prep mind-set and celebrate the creative, low-cost options that are catapulting grinning students into the global economy without a penny of debt.

Packed with myth-busting facts, insider insights, astonishing success stories, and poignant tales from the daughters themselves, this inspiring romp is essential reading for anyone ready to say, “Good-bye, old school. Hello, bold school.”
