In the Global Classroom
Business plans, marketing strategies, start-ups, international trading, creating new products, corporate social responsibility, invention patents, and global organizations, these are all concepts that might seem foriegn to some, but for the High School Inc. Global Business Academy it’s everyday lingo.
Academy students also learn critical “soft skills” and are ready to take on the business world with confidence and professionalism. These skills include public speaking, overall business etiquette, effective hand-shaking, professional eye contact, dressing for success, etc. Participants leave this academy with a thorough understanding of the global business industry, including an entrepreneurial mindset by learning how to start a successful company from the ground up on their own.
This academy in particular is 1 of 17 Lighthouse Academy and 1 of 340 California Partnership Academies (CPA).
Outside of the Classroom
One key component that makes this particular academy a success is the all-star business mentors that are investing in our future workforce on a weekly basis. Through this dedicated and passionate group of community business partners, students learn first-hand the importance of industry guidelines by learning about current trends, new technologies, company standards, and most importantly the inner workings of a real business in Orange County.
But sometimes, the best way to fully understand the mindset behind successful global organizations is seeing for yourself! Students have a passport straight into the boardroom by current businesses graciously offering tours of business sites, offices, warehouses, manufacturing locations, and other local organizations.
