The Business and Education Network is an initiative-based organization. Once an opportunity is identified, we engage our resources to work with community partners and develop a plan addressing that need.

We are also a place to bring people together. Because of the place we have in the community, we are able to convene groups of stakeholders outside of the scope of our initiatives, bringing change agents around a table to work toward furthering our mission of creating and sustaining a globally-skilled workforce.

The Academies of Lexington

The Business and Education Network partnered with Fayette County Public Schools to implement The Academies of Lexington. The Academies provide students with hands-on, real-world learning experiences aligned with the needs of local industries. By bringing together business and industry partners to take an active role in the educational experience of high school students, we are helping shape the workforce of the future.
