At the John Marshall School of Civic and Business Leadership, we strive to graduate scholars who are ready to be the leaders of tomorrow.
Scholars not only receive a rigorous education, but also opportunities to work within one of our onsite businesses, such as our coffee shop, and are actively involved in projects throughout the community. Through these experiences, they will receive hands-on training in business planning, marketing/advertising and finance.
Scholars will be challenged academically through a curriculum that prepares them for either college or a career, taught by educators who seek to ignite each individual student's passion for learning and awaken their potential to be a business leader. Each class has a business focus that allows scholars to see real world applications for the curriculum they are learning.
Finally, we believe in restorative justice and the idea that we can leave the world better than we found it by taking responsibility for ourselves and by actively pursuing change in the world; whether it's being a friend to someone, working within the community or petitioning the government for change - we can make a difference through our actions and ability to communicate.
If you want to challenge yourself to grow academically, socially and receive opportunities to work in leadership roles; then we invite you to join the John Marshall School of Civic and Business Leadership.
