Business Department

Business Education is a comprehensive Applied Academic Program that includes offerings in computer technology, marketing education, international business and specialized courses for personal use and college preparation. The Business Education Program emphasizes computer-based instructional strategies and supports and applies the academic areas of economics, language arts and mathematics.
The nature of the workplace is in a constant state of change and evolution, and the courses taught in the Business Education Program are designed to bring the world of school and work closer together by imparting broad conceptual and social skills, as well as practical and specific skills.

Business is an elective under Applied Academics. A student must earn 10 credits in two out of three selective elective areas (Fine Arts, World Languages and Applied Academics). For example, if a student earns 10 credits in a business course (Applied Academics) he/she would still need 10 credits from either World Languages or Fine Arts to satisfy the graduation requirement.

g. College Prep Elective – 1 year required.
There is not a Business requirement, however some business courses can satisfy the "g" College Prep Elective requirement if a student earns 10 credits and a grade of "C" or higher in a single, yearlong approved business course.
