About the Parzival Academy
Welcome to Parzival Academy!
We’re delighted you’re here to learn more about unconventional program to support young adults in navigating an all too conventional world.
Parzival Academy is here to help young adults find their inner compass, the one that tells them exactly whether or not they’re on the right track.
We’re committed to giving students the tools and guidance needed to create a fulfilling, joyful and sustainable life for themselves.
Too Many Are Unhappy & Unfulfilled
Parzival Academy was founded upon the idea that too many people move into the world feeling a lack of trust in themselves or their place in the world.
As a result, we see people selling their Souls in work and relationships they aren’t satisfied with, and think to ourselves, “I don’t want that! There must be a way to live in this world sharing my gifts, feeling fulfilled, and making a sustainable living.”
There’s a deep longing among young adults to know who they are and how they can effectively and meaningfully contribute in the world, but few high school, college or other educational programs offer much support in meeting this longing.
Students often feel burnt out, longing for a break. But is a “break,” really what’s needed, or might it be that what’s needed is to break free from the expectations, demands and false promises of the status quo, and find a true path of freedom?
Become Who You're Here to Be
Parzival’s gap year program is not about simply “doing” something during a break from schooling.
Our program is about “becoming” who you’re truly meant to be so you can confidently step into the world aligned with who you are and what you’re here to offer.
Our unique blend of personalized coaching and mentoring for young adults asking the question, “How do I figure out what to do with my life?” along with collaborative, project-based learning supports students to fully embody who they’re here to be.
We began as Markao Business Academy, and shifted to Parzival Academy to have a stronger focus on the socio-entrepreneurial spirit and the journey to truly know oneself and their place in the world, which we believe are critical needs in the world today.
Socio-entrepreneurialism is one of 7 key guiding principles Parzival Academy is committed to in all that we do, and all that we want students to experience.
When You Trust in Yourself, Everything Changes
Parzival Academy serves as a bridge between the limiting box of conventional education
(even the most alternative educations are too “conventional” for our taste),
and the life you long to create beyond that status quo.
We founded Parzival Academy to create a different option for young adults moving into the world,
and we’ll continue to evolve to meet the needs of the future.
