The eAcademy is a dual enrollment program for high school juniors and seniors created through a collaborative partnership involving the Venango County Economic Development Authority, the County of Venango, PennWest Clarion University Venango Campus, the eCenter @ LindenPointe and 7 local school districts. The Venango eAcademy is an expansion of the existing, highly successful, eAcademy @ LindenPointe.
This program is designed to immerse students in learning about economic development, our local region, and the essential aspects of the unlimited opportunities a different way of thinking can provide. As students learn the academic knowledge, the startup methodology, and individual skill sets they will apply it all to the creation of a startup business with a working prototype.
Students who participate in the eAcademy will combine academic knowledge, a startup methodology, and their individual skill sets to the joint creation of a startup business with a prototype within one school year. With 75% facilitation and 25% lecture this program structure is new to most students.
The program also offers an optional business college course for students enrolled in the eAcademy with Clarion Venango Campus.
“The experience is definitely something new for me and I am able to get a better grasp on how the outside world works.” - Allison (former student)
