College vs. University vs. Trade School

I've been thinking about where I'm going to go after high school, and I realized I don't really know much about the differences between the three. My goal is to become a horse trainer/riding instructor and either a teacher or a psychologist/therapist. If I become a teacher, I'd probably want to teach an agriculture, biology, or math class in the high school level, or get much more education and become a college professor in a more specific subject. I'm still only a freshman in high school, so I have plenty of time to think and decide, and I could find something completely different that I want to do, but that's my hope as of now. Anyways, what are some pros/cons of each type of school? How are they different from each other? What one do you think would be the best choice for me?

Are there any careers where you can get good pay with, but without needing to go to college?

My main concern is if I need to go to college for any careers I want, which would be freelance illustration (aka taking commissions for a living) or working with animals, like pet-sitting or working/volunteering at shelter(s), and if these would pay well.

Why is trade school so taboo in the US?

In Germany, it is completely normal for students that have graduated school to go directly into a trade school instead of college; in fact, students can learn to be in IT through hands-on learning. In the US, most are encouraged to attend college for four or so years to get a degree before actually seeing the realities of the career they're entering, and vocational schools are scoffed at, even though they can be sometimes even better at preparing students to work. Can anybody who has been in vocational school or traditional university (or both) explain what disadvantages there may be to trade school that have built up this cultural attitude? I'm intrigued to see if it may be more worthy to save money from a college route and embark on an experience-based journey to a life-long career. #trade-school #vocational-school #tech #science #information-technology #foreign #save-money #university #united-states

How come trade schools aren't mentioned more often?

Whenever someone considers a path after high school it's always a four year college. I learned that trade jobs can earn you a lot of money, but trade schools that teach you how to do certain jobs are not mentioned as often as four year colleges. I want to go to a four year college but I'm also curious in how trade schools work. #trades #trade-school #technical-school
