The CEO class is not a traditional high school class. Eighteen to twenty-two juniors or seniors will be selected through a rigorous application process to participate in the year-long class. Instead of students learning about entrepreneurship in a classroom setting, students will visit twenty to thirty local businesses throughout the year and have fifty to sixty guest speakers. Students will be creating their own businesses and presenting their business proposals to local banking investors and entrepreneurs via private meetings and then showcase their business at the annual trade show. Students will graduate from this class owning a business. This class will run ninety minutes a day from 7:15-8:45 am.
This position will be a part-time position. The teacher for this position will work directly with all of the area businesses. He/she will teach the students using a hands on/project based approach to teaching this course. The ideal candidate will have great communication skills, be outgoing and engaging, and will also be able to make strong connections with area businesses while developing strong relationships with the students in the class.

Candidates for the position should hold a teaching license or be able to obtain licensure. Experience in education is preferred.
