About us

Who we are

...and what we're all about.

Our Mission

I wish I would have known then what I know now.

How many of us have uttered those exact words many times over?  The value of that statement has not gone unnoticed with us and we’ve put together a program that finally brings that thought to reality.  Here at Career Year Academy we are committed to equipping people of all ages and backgrounds with real world skills in order to truly excel at life.  We are helping people avoid making the RUSH decision and guiding them towards the RIGHT decision for them and their future.   

Who We Are

We are people that are passionate about helping others improve their soft skills and thus improving their results in life.

We are parents who believe that education does not limit itself to the walls of educational institutions and we feel it is our duty to help others realize that and benefit from it.

We are coaches that pride ourselves on preparation, execution and delivery.
