Top businessman and actor Marvin Agustin’s Entreplab School is the celebrity entrepreneur’s newest project that offers a new kind of learning experience for senior high school students.
The 2012 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awardee is set to teach students the entrepreneurial mindset, providing learning activities in his successful 36 restaurants including the highly popular Sumo Sam, and selected establishments of business partners.
Entreplab School is a new and unique senior high school in the Technical-Vocational (TECH-VOC) track that offers Food and Beverage and Hospitality, Cookery, Accounting and Business Management (ABM), and General Academic Services (GAS).
Agustin’s education platform promises to glean key insights from his success in the food business and share his award-winning formula to the youth through the school’s creative learning experiences in mentorship, immersion, and real life.
In his open letter to future Grade 11 students posted on his Facebook page, Agustin spoke of how Entreplab School will give “more time to engage with chefs, restaurateurs and business owners- and where you get to be part of the action when it happens.”
“We imagined a school where the country’s most successful industry leaders will offer their time and guidance, sitting down with students and sharing their own inspirations,” the leading entrepreneur added. “We imagined a school where your interest and creativity will be top priority and you can learn doing what you love.”
Agustin’s Entreplab School is located at the former Sta. Rita College-Annex grounds in BF Homes Paranaque, where the celebrity entrepreneur spent 10 years of schooling. He afterwards attended the International School for Culinary Arts and Hotel Management.
