Entrepreneurship & Sustainability
The Entrepreneurship & Sustainability Program is more than just a business class—innovative education moves past classroom walls to teach real world problem solving skills and develop leadership potential. The key to success lies in hands-on learning—fostering the growth of life-long habits and values. We believe entrepreneurs are more than business owners—they are visionary problem-solvers, hard-working innovators, and empowered outside-the-box thinkers.
Entrepreneurship comes alongside sustainability uniquely at CHCA as future entrepreneurs face a landscape of environmental change. We instill the importance of clear decisions based on moral integrity that consider the need to properly steward the earth. This emphasis is a key part of our program and reflected through the sustainable practices of the student-run businesses—many of which center on food education.
