Excited by our 75-acre campus, we are developing small, student-directed agricultural businesses to help support the school. These enterprises will significantly maximize the donations we receive.
Students learn entrepreneurship by running both the practical and business side of school-based businesses. Students first choose a business idea. They study the market to understand the supply, demand, and competition. Then they determine how to create and market the product.
Using computers, they plan for cost and profit. They learn to budget, save, and invest wisely. Seeing income as a reward for their efforts is highly motivating. Students develop leadership and teamwork skills. They apply moral and ethical values as they consider their business decisions. These are highly valued skills.
