The America’s Entrepreneurial Schools (AES) Initiative is a program designed to recognize K-12 schools that have provided entrepreneurship education to every student, every year. To earn the designation, schools must provide an entrepreneurship experience to every student in a school building in a given year. Schools may earn this designation on their own, or with the support of the EntreEd team via structured professional development and additional support.
Entrepreneurship education is not “one more thing” for our teachers – it can be done in any classroom setting seamlessly. We empower educators to shift their teaching strategies to further promote creativity, problem solving, and critical thinking skills within their students.
America’s Entrepreneurial Schools foster innovation and encourage a culture of self-startership. How you choose to deliver entrepreneurial programming is up to each school. As long as every student receives entrepreneurship education, we encourage flexibility and creativity in how it happens. The program is designed to work with existing student lessons and add the context of entrepreneurship lessons. For example, an English teacher may have students write an advertisement or press release for a new business idea. The schools and teachers are recognized for their commitment to entrepreneurship education when they become a part of the AES program.
