This is Not Just a Class

YE is about more than lectures and textbooks. We focus on the application of an idea – an idea students can own. Our curriculum brings business studies to life through experiential learning, executed in real, market-based scenarios. We introduce economic thinking and strive to instill the moral character necessary for our youth to lead lives as thriving, productive citizens.

“There are few places these days where you can get the character-building experience YE provides. Even something as simple as knowing how to look someone in the eye when you shake their hand goes a really long way.” Patrick, 2003, YE Alumnus, Wichita, Kansas
