Upper School

Entrepreneurship Seminar

The Entrepreneurship Seminar introduces all 11th graders to the basic principles of entrepreneurship and invites students to actively apply their skills and knowledge in the creation of innovative products. Emphasizing teamwork and collaboration, students work in small groups to research, prototype, and refine products that respond to a specific need they have identified in the world. Moving beyond theory to action, lessons are highly experiential, placing a premium on learning by doing. As digital natives, students learn to harness their ease with technology to become creative problem solvers. The course celebrates the power of students to be real agents of change, while helping to shape their identities as leaders and entrepreneurs.
