We are so excited as we prepare to open our doors this Fall and are working

hard to create an environment for our kids that will be exciting and innovative, conducive to learning and ultimately to their success!


We need your help!

You surely can appreciate the sizable expense related to constructing a learning environment that will make our sons and daughters career-ready for multiple professions!

We are requesting donations from all who support our vision and understand

the need for a high school like this in Charlotte. All proceeds we collect will be

used to complete construction on our recently leased campus at 5745 Central Avenue and to purchase equipment for the various programs of study. Your donation is tax-deductible.


The evening will consist of a brief discussion of EHS’s initiatives, vision, and updates on our progress and goals. We’ll be serving white and red wine, and light hors d’oeuvres.


We are thrilled about the opportunity to train Charlotte's next generation of skilled professionals and entrepreneurs! We would be honored if you would

be a part of this journey with us. Please help us graduate students who are Career-READY, Work-WILLING and College-ABLE!


In anticipation of your strong and continued support,


Thank you,

Robert Hillman

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.

Select the Pathway that fits best your talents
Our Mentors help to select the Pathway that fits your talents best:

The initial Trades taught at EHS include

HVAC (Heat Vent AirCond.)
Mechatronics and Robotics

For further information about one of this Trades, please click on its name above.
