Think of the program like a College of Business, just in a high school. The program requires 6 classes: Principles of Business, Business Economics, Principles of Marketing, Principles of Finance, Principles of Management, and Business Strategies. There are also 2 option classes: Wealth Management and Leadership. All classes are project-based and offer real-world hands-on experience for students. Ideally students take the classes in order, but that can be challenging. We do allow students to take classes out of order based on their interest level.
I love the program and it has challenged my teaching. Students take a lot more ownership and control of their learning in these classes as it is taught differently than traditional classes. It increases community engagement with our program as well.
We have 4 of the 6 classes transcripted with our local technical college and the Business Economics class can count as the Social Studies Economic graduation requirement.
