Zach Eikenberry | Next for Public High Schools
NEXT High School was created in Greenville, SC as an alternative to traditional public high schools.
NEXT High School values impact over everything: harnessing entrepreneurial values, core content and skills, and real-world application to make a difference now—before students know that they “can’t.”
Beginning with a lawn care business he started when he was 15 years old, Eikenberry has started more than 10 businesses. He is also spearheading the creation of NEXT High School, a public charter school that opened in 2014 that uses a project-based curriculum preparing students for life after school.
