CEO Program

Instructor: Brita Langley

Aim of the Course:  To build an actual successful business and become an entrepreneur.

Course Description:  An application is required and selection made by CEO Committee; students must provide their own transportation. The local business community partners with area schools to create project based experiences for students.  Students visit area businesses, learn from guest speakers, participate in a class business, write business plans, and start and operate their own business.  Business concepts learned through the experiential CEO class are critical; the 21st century skills of problem solving, teamwork, self-motivation, responsibility, higher order thinking, communication, and inquiry are at the heart of student development throughout the course.  Class will meet 90 minutes per day, 5 days a week.
