Jason’s Story

Welcome to Post HS; it’s my pleasure to meet you.

One of my earliest memories in life was my father instructing me that attending college was non-negotiable. I believe I was three years old at the time. In my youth, I wore Stanford everything.

While I never particularly enjoyed school, I recognized that education would be the greatest door-opener in my life. With a quality education, I believed I had a better chance of accessing all the world had to offer.

Access to post high school education was a barrier for both of my parents. Neither finished a bachelor’s degree. My father joined the U.S. Air Force to acquire his technical background, and my mother became a flight attendant. Though my father much later in life was fortunate to attend business school at Harvard, his path into Silicon Valley was not linear.

I became a school counselor so that today’s students, especially those from diverse backgrounds, may have access to the wealth of opportunities that I always did. My education allowed me to do exactly what I wanted throughout adulthood. Currently, I love my not-so-glamorous dream job, record collection, sports season tickets, electric car, bass guitar, skis, passport full of world travel stamps, and sweetest girlfriend.

After launching Post HS, my remaining long-term goal is to eventually earn a Ph.D. and conduct research around closing the educational achievement gap. I envision an equitable future in which external educational services such as Post HS are no longer necessary.
