LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – As innovators all over the world celebrate "Global Entrepreneurship Week," in Lansing there's a group of educators teaching lessons from the business world all year long.
The Learn Live Lead Entrepreneurial Academy is a new K-6 charter school in south Lansing that hopes to instill lessons in entrepreneurship to its students.
"It's been a passion for a long time that we need to give students options in education," said the school's founder and CEO Paula Cunningham. "Business skills [that] are so important whether you start your own business or not. Those skills are important."
Since the school opened its doors in September, approximately 100 students have enrolled. And while its oldest students are just in the sixth grade, the school has a charter to expand through high school, and will add a grade each year until they have students K-12.
"We are certified just like every other school in the state of Michigan," said Cunningham, who is also president and CEO of Lansing-based Capitol National Bank. "The major difference is if we don't perform like we're supposed to, they'll shut you down."
Students who attend Learn Live Lead will adhere to the same curriculum standards as other students in the Lansing School District. However, students will receive additional education in business and entrepreneurship. "We're overlaying that [education] with some entrepreneurial tenets," said Cunningham. "So they're getting a broader education, not a more narrow one."
Students will also receive bank statements each quarter to help them learn about money, and they'll even have "jobs" at the school they'll have to apply and interview for. "It's another way to teach children how to research, how to understand what that job is teaching," said Cunningham. "It's teaching discipline and self-responsibility."
Academically, students will have the option of earning as many as two years of college credit by the time they graduate. They'll also have a passport and the opportunity to travel abroad before they receive a diploma.
"I have a lot of my own money invested into all of this. I have not taken a salary," said Cunningham. "This is not a job for me. It's a labor of love."
