Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship
Curriculum: Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE)
An entrepreneurial education is embedded in the classroom environment here at Penn Hills Charter School of Entrepreneurship (PHCSE). Students are prepared to improve their lives and society, which directly lead to positive life outcomes. An entrepreneurial education is geared towards equipping the next generation to improve their lives immediately and ultimately impact the world.
Entrepreneurial education integrated within the core curriculum gives our students a real-world experience-based learning environment. The learning methods include creating practical experiences of team-working, problem-based learning, hands-on project-based work, and learning outside the classroom.
Here at PHCSE we believe students learn best by having the opportunity to immediately apply their new found education and knowledge. Experience is essential in order for young people to build the skills necessary to lead change and create jobs. Developing our students’ confidence, supporting them in overcoming personal challenges, and guiding them towards a personal vision is the foundation for their future as leaders and entrepreneurs. We believe an entrepreneurial education will prepare our students to become economically productive leaders of society by improving their academics, business, technology and life skills for lasting success.
