BUSINESS EDUCATION

The Business Department operates under the philosophy that in order for a student to be considered truly life-ready after graduation, business education must be part of their Scituate High School educational experience.  Students that take business courses will find themselves better prepared to meet a challenging college workload, enter a hectic workforce and handle life's financial challenges.

The Business Education Department will:

  • Educate all high school students in order to develop business, computer and financial literacy.
  • Provide opportunities for non-business students to acquire business knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to function effectively in today’s dynamic economic and vocational climate.
  • Offer targeted courses for students that are considering a business concentration major in college, desire career exposure experiences and/or want to develop vital financial literacy skills.
  • Provide a continuous program of planned learning experiences designed to help students effectively make intelligent and ethical decisions to fulfill their roles as a citizen, worker, and consumer.
  • Provide career information, which will help students relate their interests, needs, and abilities to occupational opportunities in the world of work.

In addition to dynamic course offerings, the Business Education Department offers the following auxiliary programing opportunities:

  • National Business Honors Society
  • Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) Business Competitions
  • School Store Operations
  • School To Career Internships
  • Career and Vocational Field Trips to Local Colleges and Businesses
