This program sounds like it may be a good alternative for some young men and women in Charlotte who will not complete conventional high school programs and are interested in vocational training indicated in these flyers, though the name of the school includes the term "entrepreneurs." There may be benefits to focusing on preparation for a different route than direct to full-time college, and here is some information about a meeting March 15th to discuss one such proposal from the program director:
Please spread the word about the Entrepreneur High School Information Day
March 15th (11 am - 2 pm)
Did you know that 82% of area high school students don’t complete a college degree in four to six years?
What happens to them?
Underemployment? Unemployment? Welfare? Prison?
Our new charter high school (EHS) prepares students for a job and/or equips them with the tools to start their own business by integrating advanced vocational training and relevant world-class education!!
Please go to their website for more information- www.GoEHS.org, and then...
Attend the Information Day on Saturday, March 15th from 11 am to 2 pm. (See the flyer below.) This event will take place at 5431 Hickory Grove Road. We will give a presentation on the school at 11:30 am, 12:30 am and 1:30 pm.
This event will afford you an opportunity to ask questions, engage with board members and get a sense of the corporate support garnered thus far.
Open Enrollment for August 2014 is underway, and they are in the process of interviewing applicants. Interested students/parents can start the process by applying online at www.GoEHS.org.
