CEDE is a high school course in entrepreneurship grounded in the wisdom of the Catholic tradition. The course is an exploration of each student’s personal vocation—his or her unique way of creating value in the world—using design thinking and experiential learning to help each of them thrive as CEO’s of their own lives who freely choose to live them in service to others.
CEDE is driven by experiential and project-based learning. Each week students compete in groups to complete a project that creates real human value.
Each week involves at least two learning sessions. The first session is a "prompt" where students are given their project and learn about the spiritual and business principles that are fundamental to completing it. The second session of the week is an activity that teaches an entrepreneurial mindset through experience.
We believe that a spirit of freedom and play are critical to the entrepreneurial journey. CEDE combines academic rigor with fun and engaging action.Get Involved
