Course Offerings in Business Education Grade 9 Grade 10 Grade 11 Grade 12
Courses in the Business Education Department are designed to prepare students for success in academic classes and to meet the challenges of an automated society in business, industry and post-secondary education in the information age. Broad-based content and transferable skills are emphasized, as well as the attitudes necessary to pursue educational and career goals. Development of skills in communications, problem solving, decision making, computer literacy, career information and understanding of basic business and economic concepts are integrated throughout the curriculum.
The curriculum in the Business Education Department is being developed and redefined on an ongoing basis. Each year, courses are designed or redesigned to build a base of marketable school-to-career technology skills and to provide a robust preparation for college level or technical school work. Business courses prepare students thoroughly for employment through hands-on and activity-based learning. Students master the tools of technology, produce professional documents, and apply critical thinking in all areas of study. All courses have incorporated various sections of the Massachusetts Department of Education Frameworks.
