Help prepare your teen for adulthood with Voyage, an interactive, online, life skills course designed for high school students!
I often tell my children to enjoy being kids because, let’s face, being an adult is HARD! As an adult, I long for the days to not having a care in the world! I miss having someone else pay the bills and do all the grocery shopping. I wish I could go back to the time of not being concerned about things like taxes and budgeting and all the other things that consume me now that I’m an adult!
But, as we all know, the time comes when you have to step out from under the protection and security of your parent(s)/guardian(s) and start “adulting”!
And, before you ask, YES, “adulting” is a real word! How do I know? Well, first, the word didn’t grammatically auto-correct when I typed it. And, I looked it up in the dictionary!
So, “adulting” is all about becoming a responsible grown-up and being ready for “the real world!” Is your high schooler ready for life after they graduate?
Take a peek at this free Adulting checklist to see what all this so-called “adulting” entails!
High School Life Skills Course
Transitioning from high school to adult life is HUGE and I’m certain you want to help prepare your child to successfully make that leap! That’s why I’m excited to tell you about Voyage from Thrive Academics!
Voyage is an interactive, online program that walks teens through the essential skills that every high schooler needs to know in order to successfully make the transition into adulthood.

Voyage is an online, life prep course especially designed for high school students. It contains five interactive modules:

Module 1: Who Am I
In Who I Am, your student will walk through a step-by-step process that will help them identify their purpose and strengths, build a personal brand to guide them through decision making, establish a vision for their future, set goals to achieve that vision, and then create action steps to make their goals a reality. – Thrive Academics

Using a career profiler, your student will not only learn what careers match up with their personality and interests, they will also explore how to pursue training and education, build a resume, and participate in a job interview. – Thrive Academics

Module 5: Everyday Living
In this module, your student will walk through some of the skills that might be easily missed, such as establishing a healthy lifestyle through good eating, sleeping, and fitness habits or practicing strong communication skills. They will also consider home and auto maintenance as well as skills necessary for travel – Thrive Academics
Prepare Your Student for Life
Within the modules, students identify their strengths and purpose. They develop their brand. They explore educational and career pathway options. They learn about goal setting and develop a mission statement.
But, I really appreciate the fact that within Voyage, students also learn about more practical and tangible things, like how to:
- fill out a job application
- write a resume and cover letter
- prepare for a job interview
- complete a college application
- apply for financial aid & scholarships
- obtain, manage & balance financial accounts
- establish & maintain healthy credit
- buy a car
- maintain personal health & nutrition
- navigate an airport, and so much more!
Each module allows the student to dive deep and explore the many facets of adulting! Since Voyage is designed for self-paced, independent learning, students are able to take their time moving through the modules as they work to develop these all-important life skills!
