Business, marketing, and technology courses are designed to give students a head start in post-secondary courses or provide competencies to begin future training and employment upon graduation. Students should consider taking courses in business, marketing, and technology if they plan to take further courses after graduation, enter the work force, or add balance to their high school course selection.


Sequencing of courses is necessary in order to meet various course prerequisites. Students planning a career path in business should begin the sequence of courses at the 9th and 10th grade levels with basic skill development courses in FACTS and Accounting. With counselor guidance, students should plan a series of business, marketing, and technology courses, integrated with their college preparatory courses to develop skills needed for post-secondary education or for success in the world of work.


All courses count towards the elective requirements for graduation with the exception of Economics and Financial Literacy.
