The Academy will introduce and teach key leadership concepts to our students. The activities will align with the Framework for 21st Century Learning. Our goal will be to provide our students with the leadership habits and tools needed on their expeditionary journey. Students will also be provided with opportunities to interface with business leaders and to understand the different opportunities for business development and entrepreneurship. Through a series of projects, the students will each learn how to create a business plan and execute on that plan. Instruction will also be provided in technological innovation and how those innovations affect today's global business environment, by applying an international perspective. Exposure to business software will also be provided for the upper elementary and middle school classes. The school will engage students in practical finance and business opportunities, including participation in "The Stock Market Game".
