Amy Oliveri, Director

An entrepreneurial mindset enables students to better analyze situations, reframe challenges, and develop strategies to reach a desired goal. The AC Center for Entrepreneurship helps develop that mindset, inspiring students to adapt to a constantly evolving world as they grow, learn, apply, and execute new ideas. By connecting globally, carving their own paths, accepting failure as part of the process, and using empathy as a tool, students develop an authentic, universally applicable, and transferable skill set.

STEM and Innovation

Maya Crosby, Director

At Allendale Columbia, we’re committed to providing authentic, relevant learning experiences that challenge students. Our STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) curriculum is enabling students to excel in these critical and interconnected areas of study.
