WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – In classrooms across the nation, elementary and middle school students are learning the basics of business skills for the 21st century. At Ivy Academia Entrepreneurial Charter School, located in Woodland Hills, Calif., the focus is primarily on entrepreneurship and its application for the real world.
This charter school builds on the traditional curriculum of California public schools, while also incorporating critical thinking, personal research, expression through writing and speech, and practical application of all subjects. The school provides numerous "hands-on" business experiences for students. As part of the entrepreneurial program students and teachers were recently invited to spend the day at Collectors Editions, Canoga Park, CA, learning about the business of fine art publishing and printmaking.
