  • Students will be guided by TIS staff and supported by the entrepreneurs and business leaders who volunteer as classroom speakers, field trip hosts, business plan coaches, and competition judges.

  • This course is ideal for all parents but can also be a very useful tool for caretakers, grandparents, teachers, and anyone who spends a lot of time helping to shape the minds of the next generation.
  • This course provides an overview of all the parenting skills that are necessary to raise a healthy and well-adjusted adult. It will also help you learn where and why some challenges may arise and how to best go about overcoming them.
