3DE Launches in Louisville!

3DE Schools by Junior Achievement re-engineers high school education to be more relevant, experiential, and authentically connected to the complexities of the real world in order to prepare today’s students for the demands of tomorrow’s economy.

The program brings real-world problem-solving representing real workplace challenges into the everyday academic experience. Results from the 3DE Atlanta, Georgia pilot prove that 3DE increases student engagement strengthens comprehension, builds critical thinking, and accelerates academic performance.

3DE has launched in two of Jefferson County Public Schools’ Academies of Louisville – The Academy at Shawnee and Valley High School and we have completed our first year with the freshman class.  We are excited to bring the program to another Jefferson County Public School in the Fall of 2023.

Partner with us…

Partnerships catalyze profound transformation. 3DE by Junior Achievement is not a program or an add-on, but rather it is a model that completely re-engineers how we do high school.  By graduation, each 3DE student will experience 16 real-world case challenges and a senior capstone project.  National and local business partnerships, with organizations such as UPS, Delta Airlines, Deloitte, Amgen and Chick Fil A, provide case challenges geared towards entrepreneurial thinking.

The Impact…

3DE Schools accelerates students’ social and academic outcomes through learning that builds the knowledge, skills and confidence to thrive.

As case content weaves through Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and career courses, students learn the required Kentucky Academic Standards while developing the competencies of creativity & innovation, cultural agility, critical thinking, effective collaboration, engaging communication and self-direction.

This combination of content and competencies prepares each student for the jobs of the future, and in many cases, jobs that do not yet exist.
