Please know that applicant families are free to contact us with any questions and we are available and happy to answer them.

Thank you Anatoly

Anatoly Bushler, Jacob and Ari’s dad, has been offering an optional afterschool Entrepreneurial Club for our 4th and 5th graders. The mission of the club is to help Kittredge students better understand the world around them through the lens of entrepreneurship, business and finance, and give them a hands-on feel for how they can use entrepreneurship and innovation to make the world a better place. The students are excited and engaged and we can’t wait to see what business ideas they come up with.

Thank you for your time and experience, Anatoly!
