“The ROP, specifically the Business Academy, has been one of the greatest experiences of my high school career. Before I joined this program, I planned on just coasting through high school. Now I have gained a valuable wealth of knowledge and experience that I would have never developed anywhere else. I learned essential lessons on how to work in the professional world, like how to build a resume and create a business plan to present to community leaders. I can honestly say that what I have learned in this program has prepared me more for the future than all of my other classes in high school. I now have a clear vision of my future, going to college and pursuing a career in business. I would not have this if I was not part of this program.”
