What make us
Our program emphasizes critical thinking and creativity to provide students with the tools to problem solve and develop both intellectual and industry skills.
Learning entrepreneurship changes mindsets, changes lives, changes the world. We aim to equip young people with an innovator’s eye and a founder’s grit–the skills and other skills needed to excel in an innovative economy. With economists predicting that many of the jobs of tomorrow don’t even exist today, entrepreneurial and adaptive skills are important ingredients of a successful future.
A Fun & Engaging Environment that prepares students for the future.
The CUBE will ensure a quality academic foundation by creating an environment of entrepreneurialism within the school through which students can strengthen their problem-solving skills in a collaborative, authentic learning environment. Students will exit from their school experience prepared to persevere through college, transitioning into a career pathway, and/or pursue a business start-up based on a skill or innovation created during their academic journey.
The CUBE offers a dynamic curriculum designed to enhance communication and collaboration while enabling critical thinking, problem solving, initiative and self-reliance.
Students learn entrepreneurship skills through leadership improvement processes such as Six Sigma.
At the CUBE, students’ educational plans include courses at post-secondary institutions that can provide credits and lead to scholarships and other opportunities should they go on to college.
