Welcome to the wonderful world of business! Our High School of Business™ is designed much like a college Business Administration program. My goals are to:
· Provide students with a thorough understanding of business concepts and their theoretical underpinnings
· Foster economic understanding in the context of business decision-making
· Encourage students to think critically
· Stimulate innovative and entrepreneurial thinking
· Stress integration with academics
· Provide a foundation that supports advanced study in business
· Provide a broadly based business curriculum that supports transferable skills and knowledge between and among industries
· Incorporate the use of technology to perform business activities
· Stress the use of emotional intelligence in diverse societies
· Foster a realistic understanding of professional business environments and employer expectations
· Stimulate information literacy skills
· Foster an understanding, appreciation, and application of business ethics
College Credit Opportunities for High School Students
Many of our business and marketing courses provide students with the opportunity to earn both high school and college credits in high school. Please take a moment to read more about our Front Range Community College Concurrent Partnership and our University of Colorado CU Succeed Program.
Beyond the Classroom
We highly encourage each of our students to participate in business co-curricular student organizations: DECA and FBLA. These programs provide students with the opportunity to apply their learning to business related scenarios.
DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.
Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) education association with a quarter million students preparing for careers in business and business-related fields.
Internships - Adams County
Students can participate in internships that explore many different careers. This opportunity is only available to Adams County students.
The mission of Junior Achievement is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. It's not an easy task. But it's the kind of challenge that JA takes on with creative energy, fervor, and decisive action.
We also bring in guest speakers from business and industry throughout the year, so students can find out more about the "real" world of business. If you are interested in these types of opportunities, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Capitalism With a Conscience
Students in all of our classes are taught about the value of nurturing a successful business by implementing sound ethical practices and giving back to the community. Guest speakers from business and industry also come into classes to present and work on "real world" ethical scenarios with the students and to share how their businesses give back to the community.
