Amerinvest Educational Properties LLC (AEP) and The Chanute Institute

Amerinvest Educational Properties and the Chanute Institute's primary goal had originally been to develop international education programs, especially in the area of education for Chinese and other Asian citizens in the United States. In order to lay the foundation for making such programs successful Amerinvest has formed strategic alliances with educational institutions and travel companies in China, Hong Kong and Illinois. The success of these programs should create hundreds of new jobs and has the potential of bringing revenues in the multi-million dollar range into the nation's economy.

Since November 1994 a gymnasium and a theater have been renovated and leased to The Lincoln's Challenge Academy - a federally funded secondary education program. The Lincoln's Challenge program is well established and has earned national recognition. In February of 1999, the U.S. Government announced that Lincoln's Challenge would be a fully funded, permanent Federal program.

Apart from the Lincoln’s Challenge Academy program, an off campus facility was successfully established in 2007 and sold to Rantoul Township High School the following year in 2008.

One of these is the Sino-American joint MBA Program where a selection of special students will be taught jointly by both Chinese and American university faculty in China and in the United States. Upon completion candidates will have earned a joint MBA degree recognized by both the Chinese and participating American universities.

The Chanute Institute has agreed to enroll some of its own students, and Amerinvest is now gearing up for a surge in future enrollment.

New Initiatives:

Amerinvest Educational Properties and the Chanute Institute's primary goal have been to develop international education programs. However two additional programs not specifically targeted at international students, are also under consideration. It is hoped that these will encourage participation of American students from all ethnic backgrounds to stimulate a climate of cultural and entrepreneurial exchange between both American and international students.
