BUILD Application
The BUILD Program helps students develop their own business ideas, write business plans, pitch to funders, and launch real businesses. As they reap the rewards—from keeping their profits to gaining self-confidence—they clearly see the connection between the classroom and career success. Students also receive individualized academic support and advising for their school-work, get help with college planning, participate in business coaching after school, and present to large audiences as a part of business plan competitions with other schools in the city.
Participation in BUILD is a unique opportunity! Only 25 students will be admitted to the BUILD program, and there are no specific academic requirements. We encourage the students with a high interest in BUILD to apply.

In addition to fulfilling the DCPS graduation requirements, BUILD students are expected to:
- Commit to the BUILD program for four years (ninth grade as a class and after school, tenth through twelfth grades after school sessions)
- Stay after school one day each week until 6:30 p.m. to meet with business mentor and develop your own business.
- Participate in a family orientation prior to acceptance into the program.
- Attend evening and weekend events as required to learn about other businesses and to market and sell your products.
