The mission of Austin Business and Entrepreneurship Academy is to provide academic rigor in a safe, culturally-responsive environment. We will develop supportive relationships to promote academic excellence for all students. By utilizing the strengths of our community partnerships, our graduates will develop the leadership, citizenship, and critical-thinking skills necessary for success in college, careers, and beyond.
Austin Business and Entrepreneurship Academy will serve approximately 400 minority students in the Austin community who have traditionally underperformed academically.

Teachers should possess a minimum of a bachelor’s degree with appropriate Illinois teacher certification, have interest in working in an after-school capacity, vested interest in student achievement, and proven record of developing relationships with parents and community members. Para-Professionals must possess a minimum of 60 credit hours of collegiate work and a Para-professional license with the state of Illinois.
