During Fall Semester 2017, York Institute saw its first Entrepreneurship class since 2002. The Business and Marketing academic cluster with a focus on Entrepreneurship was added back to the course options last
school year. This program allows students to take Introduction to Business and Marketing, Marketing Principles, and Entrepreneurship to satisfy their focus requirement to graduate from York Institute.
The Entrepreneurship Class was able to establish relationships with key people to develop real, working business plans.
A great deal of planning went into developing the course content as well as coordinating classroom guest speakers, field trips, and business plan presentations.
Alvin C. York Institute is a public high school founded in 1926 by World War I hero Alvin York and later transferred to the state of Tennessee in 1937.
