Entrepreneurship Certificate

Munroe is part of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, http://www.nfte.com/our-programs/. Students in 3rd grade get the opportunity to create an original business concept through their STEAM class. Our students build skills in problem-solving, teamwork, advanced technologies, and techniques for starting and running a successful business.

Beginning in 6th grade students are able to take advanced courses in technology and entrepreneurship. At the end of the multi-year program they earn an industry-recognized credential to certify the entrepreneurial mindset and startup skills developed in the program.

Students in the program will get the chance to compete for funding from NFTE to allow them to fund their small business while still in High School, including participation in regional and national level competitions.

The program guides students through a set sequence of courses that leads to a certification that is included on their college transcripts, especially highlighted to colleges, and will receive recognition at graduation. Participants in the program will also get the chance to see the entrepreneurship programs at TCC and FSU.
