Student Engagement Through Developing Entrepreneurial/Financial Literacy Skills
Lemont High School has partnered with Jr. Achievement to operate a program in which students develop their entrepreneurial skills through developing a business from the ground up. Students conduct market research to fill a product/service that will fulfill a community need. Students develop the product, produce (in some cases), market, and sell their product. Students complete a comprehensive program which includes writing a business plan, annual reports, along with competing against other area high schools for Company of the Year.
