Welcome to Clara Brown Entrepreneurial Academy. The future needs young minds with an entrepreneurial mindset who can imagine and lead what's next for our society and our world. That's a mindset that can and should be developed at an early age. We integrate a social emotional foundation that is infused with an entrepreneurial approach to learning.  We empower students to identify opportunities, anticipate needs, and seek innovative solutions ensuring that they are college & career ready and able to create their own successful futures!

The Clara Brown Entrepreneurial Academy is Aurora Public Schools’ preeminent district-wide destination school for students in grades K-8 who thrive in an educational environment with interdisciplinary learning opportunities that promote curiosity, innovation, and entrepreneurial risk taking.

Our academics are infused with an entrepreneurial approach to learning that empowers students to identify opportunities, anticipate needs, and seek innovative solutions ensuring that they are college & career ready. We use the same district math & literacy curriculum as other APS schools.  We also carve out time for immersive hands-on, real-world scenarios to help students develop a solutions-based mindset to gain real-life skills to address complex challenges. Our dynamic teachers work with students to encourage intellectual risk-taking so that students become confident in their abilities. Our collaborative culture promotes the benefits of working together toward common goals so that students learn to work effectively in teams.

Students graduate from middle school prepared to be innovators and leaders.
