One of the many goals for our Business Team is to prepare our students to succeed in the workforce and ultimately “make money”.  Whether than means immediately after high school, students decide​ to start their own business or go directly to post ​secondary education.  We also encourage a continued path of earning a master’s degree, law degree, doctorate, or the like.  Regardless of the path chosen, our students need to be financially responsible. 

Our team of Business Teachers are passionate to teach the skills that will help them get an advantage over others.  What skills?  Skills like basic and advanced accounting – determining whether your income is exceeding your expenses, finding ways to make more profit, exploring the software tools available to aid in proper reporting for taxes.  Skills like basic technology – Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Access, OneNote are powerful programs used in everyday business. 

Our students can receive certifications in many of these programs and earn accreditation towards a Specialist High Skill Major in Business Studies.  This is a designation that is highly recognized by post secondary institutions in Ontario.  Skills like “Business Leadership”, where students learn how to be a leader amongst their peers.  This includes learning how to lead in the corporate world, how to supervise effectively and how to best develop and manage a team, as well as many other important leadership qualities.  These are some of the programs and opportunities our Business Studies program has to offer.  For now, just watch our video so we can show you a little more about our focus!
