    Real World Academy:
    Real World Academy is unique in that it also works with students at transitions, all the way from high school until the workforce. Many "college prep" are simply SAT prep courses, and do nothing to continue working with the student to make sure they actually succeed. Real World Academy is MUCH more than that.Real World Academy lets any high school student or parent hire an "Agent," a customized counselor and life coach. But simply having an agent does not mean that you will succeed. Students need to take initiative and self-actualize.Real World Academy is unique in its industry ties. We will help any of our interested students find an internship.
    Topics:
    What is the college experience like for a first-generation immigrant? What are the secrets to success? 
    How to effectively use social media and digital marketing as a young person looking for a job.
