Semester-long to Full Academic Year:

Our standard format spreads the learning across a semester (approximately 15 weeks) or a full academic year (30 weeks).

These sessions are typically held once a week for one hour, allowing students to deeply engage with the content without overwhelming their schedules.

This format is ideal for integrating into existing school curricula as an extracurricular activity, providing ongoing development and reinforcement of entrepreneurial and leadership skills over time.

For those looking for an immersive, concentrated learning experience, we offer our courses as week-long camps.

These camps are intense and interactive, designed to cover key concepts and skills in a compact format.

This option is perfect for schools or organizations that wish to provide a robust learning experience during breaks or special learning weeks.
