Students & Parents Who Demand More
If you've made it this far, you're probably already questioning the value of traditional education options. Let us be the first to say: welcome home. MYX is proud to feature students who have similar outcomes, but with very different experiences.
I am so excited about the opportunities that MYX is bringing to the field of education that has long been in-need of disruption.
Dick Gephardt, Former House Majority Leader and MYX Advisor
Traditional colleges have a one-size-fits-all approach that can make you feel like the product of a factory system. While some professionals like doctors and lawyers are rightfully served by a long period spent in the classroom, not every career requires the same level of time, training and cost in order to get started.
MYX was inspired by seeing all of the students who looked at this system and asked for an alternative. Who questioned the ROI and skyrocketing costs of tuition. Who want a career, not a degree. Who would rather learn from hands-on experiences than sitting in lecture halls. Who want to explore the huge world around them, rather than a small college town. And who need some help putting all of these together into one, easy-to-access education option.
At Warby we think a lot about work-life integration. I think it’s the same with school, and that’s why I’m so excited about what you’re building at MYX. How can we couple these to help people grow?
Neil Blumenthal, Co-Founder and Co-CEO Warby Parker
As a lifelong educator, I've seen how many people are struggling with the "one-size-fits-all" mentality of traditional learning. Each student deserves an education tailored to their unique background and goals, with a holistic approach to becoming ready for success in life (not just in the classroom).
With each pod limited to 15 students and one career concentration, MYXers are able to gain more access to their mentors than big lecture halls can ever provide, and learn together in a community that feels like family. That is what MYX has been able to accomplish, and we are so excited about where the future is heading!
MYX Founder and Chief Learning Officer
This is the coolest education program I've ever seen, and I'm in education. I can't believe what you guys are doing here. I've never seen a smile so big on my kid's face. I can't thank you enough!
Spike B, MYX Parent
When people hear about MYX, they often say, "it's like you built this just for me." Well... that's exactly what we did! What began in 2019 as a higher ed think-tank then evolved into an in-person experience that served 60+ students over two years. With this knowledge, we developed a platform that could reach beyond tens or hundreds of students and instead seek to provide thousands with the opportunity to Make Your eXperience.
Our partner programs have seen over 5,000 graduates who have gone on to start amazing new careers with the leaders of their industries. And our partner locations are staffed 24/7 by a team using in-depth local knowledge to create thousands of authentic activities and experiences in over 163 destinations worldwide.
