What if it was possible to develop the potential within you?
"This seminar has helped me in many ways. It has showed me that I can achieve goals that are even higher than my expectations. It has also shown me that what other people think is impossible is possible and that no matter what people say to discourage you, you need to keep on going and always know you can and there are no limits to what you can do." M.H., participant from New Britain High School
You will develop skills that will serve you well for a lifetime.
"This seminar has made a huge difference for me. It showed me how to be a leader. And that I have the power to make a difference in my life." S.S., participant from Hartford Public High School
Whether you want to have a job, go to college or open a business, this program will provide you everything you need to succeed.
Not your typical business class!
In the Academy of Mastery you learn by doing. Our programs are not a typical "how to start a business" course. Rather, they focus on key practices you must master to be a successful entrepreneur or employee - Integrity, Enrollment, Team, Freedom and Power, Leadership, Identity versus Intention, Faith/Trust/Risk, Being a 10 and Playing by the Rules. For example, using these practices in one of our programs The Entrepreneurial Course for High School Students, you and a team of students will conceive of and launch a money-generating enterprise in nine weeks.
Our programs are interactive, experience-based and specially designed for you. You go through thought-provoking discussions and exercises in the classroom, weekly work assignments, team meetings between weekly classroom sessions, and the creation and generation of the team business.
Entrepreneurial Course for High School Students
In The Entrepreneurial Course for High School Students, it all starts with the selection of your business. In only nine weeks, you launch a money-generating business, and go through a profound personal transformation. This program is available to you if you are a high school junior or senior.
There are nine weekly after-school classroom sessions. The culminating event is an evening Business Fair between sessions eight and nine, at which the students showcase and sell their products, and to which friends, family and community members, including state officials and educators are invited.
Celebrate success at the Youth Business Fair!
At the end of the program, you will celebrate the new businesses created from scratch in only nine weeks by more than one hundred teenage Entrepreneurs.
