Entrepreneurship Academy

About this Major

The Entrepreneurship Academy is designed to prepare high school students for success in college and to help them realize their creative potential. Students take rigorous math and science courses (honors and AP level only) along with an Entrepreneurship curriculum centered around growing an idea into a workable business concept.

High school students may attend for up to three (3) school years. College credit for Advanced Placement courses is available upon passing the appropriate AP College Board Exam(s). Universities vary in their recognition of AP credits. Therefore, the number of available credit hours will depend upon the policies of the specific university a graduate plans to attend.

Eligible Licensures/Certifications

AP college credit is available for students who pass Calculus, Chemistry or Physics AP tests. Universities vary in recognition of AP credits, so available credit is dependent on the policies of the institution.
