Can you get into a top-notch college even if you can’t go to high school?

Can you get into a top-notch school if you don’t attend high school?

This, of course, would be possible. However, it will be necessary to have a support system around you and manage your learning. You don’t have to force yourself to go to high school, but you should be able to continue learning.

It was with this in mind that I received a report that an Internet school I had been operating since 2000 had finally received a student who had passed the University of Tokyo this year. When you study at school on the Internet, it tends to be lonely, but you can actually connect with a lot of people through the Internet. You are never alone. In addition, as long as students keep track of their learning, which is also a part of the work process, they will surely be able to achieve some kind of learning. All that’s left is to decide where the goal is.

As a matter of fact, all three siblings of one of our business partners did not attend high school. I’m sure there was a strategy for parents, but they’ve already started up and are moving into the education industry.

This year, I also received the good news that the child of a college friend of mine, after dropping out of high school, took the GED and was accepted into the Faculty of Letters at Keio University. It would be nice to see such success stories coming out in our daily lives.

All of these students’ learning has in common a strong sense of planning and will. How can an ordinary person acquire this kind of know-how, and does that mean learning project management?

I strongly hope that the concept of project management will be introduced in various learning environments, such as elementary and secondary schools, universities, cram schools, and prep schools.

Is learning project management useful for further education?

Will learning project management be useful in college?

I sometimes hear that from parents. Students may also be asked such questions by themselves.

In a nutshell, when you learn project management, you become more aware of your goals and are able to manage the work process, which inevitably leads to a so-called “motivation switch”. If learning can be thought of as a project between students, parents, teachers, and other stakeholders, then I think it would be helpful.

In this year’s university entrance examination, a student who studied project management passed through the difficult entrance examination with a recommendation from the University of Tsukuba, and passed with flying colors.

This student told us while he was already in high school that he had decided to work for NASA. It’s called saying and doing. He chose the closest university to his goal, and in the test interview, he appealed to the interviewer that he had been studying project management since his high school days in order to achieve his goal. I hope to see him really working at NASA in the near future.
