Our Approach

At its core, VentureSchool is student-centered, entrepreneurially-focused, and community-rooted. We empower students to unleash their entrepreneurial mindset while providing a personalized, flexible, and adaptive learning experience to prepare them for success regardless of where they go after high school. Our students are Detroit’s next generation of doers.

Student-centered

The needs of our students are at the center of everything that we do at VentureSchool. From the design of the physical learning space to the teacher-curated curriculum, everything has been crafted with student needs in mind. This creates a unique and tailored educational experience that prepares all students to be successful.

Entrepreneurially-Focused

What makes VentureSchool especially unique among other high schools throughout the country is that we give every student the opportunity to build a venture (non-profit organization or for-profit company) of their own from the ground-up. By the time they graduate from VentureSchool, students will not only earn a diploma, but can have a full-fledged plan to continue growing their venture.

Community Rooted

At VentureSchool, we believe in the power of unified neighborhoods and the ability for schools to serve as the heart of communities. Furthermore, we believe that a community that learns together grows stronger together. VentureSchool will not only be a place for students to receive an excellent education, but for residents of the neighborhood to use as a gathering place and resource center.
