Prepare for your career while building the business of your dreams

Students build their future in the most unique way imaginable: by creating, designing, improving and presenting their own business concept. Using the power of creativity and the Danforth Campus' innovative tools and resources, students learn how to unleash their human potential and embrace the entrepreneurial spirit.

The curriculum developed in collaboration with INCubatoredu takes students through a new way of learning. Students experience the entrepreneurial process firsthand, developing skills such as critical thinking, creative problem solving, teamwork and public speaking. Failure is an accepted outcome, and instead of producing a bad grade, it simply gives students the chance to go back, to refine their creation and solve problems while they learn.

Students work on their business projects alongside advanced placement and college prep courses, giving them both the knowledge and experience that leads to success at the next level, be it college or business ownership. So what are you waiting for? Start dreaming, and tomorrow you could solve one of many problems to make life better for everyone.
