In December 2014 the SBEC voted to adopt the California Academy of Mathematics and Science (CAMS). CAMS is a small STEM high school located on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills. CAMS serves eleven school districts in the South Bay area and was ranked as the 4th best high school in the nation for “beating the odds” by Newsweek in 2014. More than 50% of CAMS’ students qualify for the federal free or reduced lunch program, and consistently 100% of our students graduate. 100% of CAMS’ students go directly to college with 95% going directly to four-year universities. With a focus on Biotechnology and Engineering, CAMS’ mission is to increase the pool of STEM ready graduates in the South Bay area. Our focus on modern technology and innovation aligns closely with the SBEC’s focus on the importance innovation.
California State University, Dominguez Hills is one of 23 universities that make up the California State College system. As the primary university located in the South Bay, it is only fitting that we partner with this institution of higher learning. The College of Business Administration and Public Policy (CBAPP) offers an undergraduate degree in Entrepreneurship. In addition, the Entrepreneurial Institute at CSUDH has also agreed to partner with us.
The SBEC has gone GLOBAL with our KBDC partnership
THE KOREAN BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER (KBDC) Briefly, the KBDC is one of 17 centers located worldwide and the only KBDC in California. There are only four in the entire US. The KBDC is an incubator (about 10,000 sq. ft.) that houses 23 Korean companies (mostly light manufacturers), all Korean based, for three years. In Korea, there is a waiting list to join this program. The KBDC is part of an $8 Billion program funded by the South Korean Government. We see our mentors to play a key role in forging this partnership to a win-win outcome.
