How EXCITING!  Yeah, yeah it is a fabulous building, but more importantly it is your future!  The Buinger Academy is for you… if you already know what you want to do with your life (or so you think) the Academy is for you… and if you don’t have a clue what you want to do, the Academy is for you.  And here is the main thing…it can save you lots of money. 

Back in the day, I thought I knew what I wanted to do with my life but after a year of Economics at college, I decided that I didn’t want to do it for the rest of my life so I changed majors…to the cost of over $10,000 of my OWN money!!  Then after a couple of other changes…cha-ching each time…I ended up getting my Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.  I waited tables at Chili’s to pay my own way through university, so $30,000 is a lot of “Can I get you a refill on that drink?”

But you don’t have to go through that…you have the BCTEA.  You can try whatever classes here to help you decide what you want to spend your hard earned money on.  You don’t have to know what you want to do for the rest of your life right now, but you do need a plan on how to survive…other than living with your parents forever.

Besides helping you decide what you want to do, the Academy can actually help you earn money. There are many certifications you can earn that can get you into a good paying job as soon as you graduate.  I would have rather earned $20 an hour by jabbing people with needles and extracting blood (phlebotomy) than running back and forth with drink refills!! Plus when I waited tables, if I was sick then I couldn’t work which means I didn’t earn any money #hurtskiing #norentmoney #reallyhappened.  You want a career, not a job.  A career that can give you good benefits like sick days, vacation days, and health insurance.

So whether you are ready for university now, or you need a gap year (Google it – nearly everybody in Europe does it), or you need to work immediately, the Gene A Buinger Career and Technical Education Academy can be of immense advantage by providing you opportunities to explore and develop personal & professional goals in order to achieve what you need for a successful future.
