After having most of all students’ knowledge and aptitutes assessed, and having started the development of students’ ILTPs, we will focus on operating – as much as possible – as if it were our permanent facility. That includes adjusting class schedules to the limitations of this temporary facility.

Of course, you may bring your student to 'The Park' on 800 Briar Creek Road. We will serve breakfast starting at 7:30 am.

 

 - Uniforms:  Can be ordered now. Ask your student for order form.

 

 - Lunch:   Will be served


 - New sign-ups:   We have 20 additional places. Just show up at school at 8:00 am.



Bus Schedule

Students and Parents, based on the number of students requesting transportation, we will be using two buses.  Look for yellow school buses with 'North Carolina Independent Schools' written on the side.

We will monitor and make changes as needed. Please feel free to provide us with your feedback - bus-email . Thank you.

Dear Student:

If you want to be ready for a career at the end of high school,

EHS is the right choice for you!

The Entrepreneur High School prepares you for a profession of your choice.

You will have skills that are needed in your community by being

industry-certified, for example, ASE, AWS, NCCR, or NIMS! 

You will be ready for the profession you have chosen,

ready for a life that is fulfilling,

and ready to make money.

If you are interested in starting your own business, the 'Entrepreneur Academy' within EHS offers you that opportunity.

Finally, you may also choose to continue studying at a college or start an advanced apprenticeship.

Join us on our Info-Weekend, see above.

________________________________________________________________________________

Individual Learning and Training Plan - ILTP

The centerpiece of making you Career-READY is the Individual Learning and Training Plan, the ILTP.

You, your parents, and your EHS-mentor agree on your ILTP before you start at EHS. With the help of well-established assessment tools and the experience of your mentor, the ILTP states which profession or Trade you want to prepare for, and which classes and workshops you are required to take to achieve your goal. Rather than focusing on being promoted from grade-level to grade-level, you will be promoted from Freshman to Candidate for Apprentice, Journeyman, and Junior Engineer in your chosen Trade.

Rather than studying general Math, Algebra, Calculus, or English Literature, you will take the Math and English that is relevant for your professional goal; the Math and English you need to know to do your job.

Of course, your ILTP can be changed as you progress and learn more about the chosen profession. In order to graduate, to be Career-READY, you will be required to pass the Workshops, an Internship in a company, and complete an Exit Project associated with the Trade you have chosen.
