The Business Education department offers a strong elective program for students in our high schools. The department strives to provide students with the technical, problem solving, critical thinking, and analytical skills necessary for pursuing a college education, entering the workplace, and functioning in a global society. In the pursuit of these skills, the department works with students to assist them in becoming clear and effective communicators, self-directed and lifelong learners. Whether a student is off to college or entering the work force, business courses provide an edge, exposing students to concepts, applications and skills needed to succeed in the workplace as well as in everyday life.

Other opportunities for students to practice and hone skills and knowledge acquired in Business classes are through the Distributed Education Clubs of America (DECA) and the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA).
