    Business and Entrepreneurship in the Clyde Strickland Entrepreneurship Center

    Designed for students who are interested in pursuing a career as an Entrepreneur in business. This pathway interweaves college prep language arts with business, marketing, entrepreneurship and business technology.  Preparing our students for a career in business, the Clyde Strickland Entrepreneurship center builds knowledge and skills gained in both the classroom and in the workplace that employers are seeking and expecting in the workforce.

    The academy/program as a whole will be responsible for two school based enterprises (SBEs) (Businesses that run as part of the school course in which all funds go directly back into the program). This is where the students get trained and learn how to use the equipment in the makerspaces in our area.
