The goal of the CDS Entrepreneurship program is to develop problem solvers, cutting-edge thinkers, and citizens of the world that will continually contribute. We want our CDS Patriots Innovation Ready! Amazingly, this concept starts in the ECC with teaching our smallest patriots how to explore and continues through elementary and middle school teaching critical-thinking and communication. By the time our students reach the upper school they have learned how to work through the cycle of ideation to pitching for investment.
