Info Tech 9 & Business Computer Applications 11

Come to one of these classes and break all those bad habits you developed over the years.  Gone is the two fingered "hunt & peck" style of typing.  We practice and enforce the "touch typing" method with 10 fingers and aim for 60 to 80 words per minute and sometimes kids do better than that!  We also learn how to produce a variety of business documents and use all the Microsoft Office programs.

Accounting 11 and 12

Accounting - the language of business. There are two levels in the course:  intro and advanced.  During the class you learn how to deal with all the money in business.  Everyone should take this course, especially if you like money!

Entrepreneurship 12

Entrepreneurship is a great course for people who want to get an idea of how business works.  There are three big projects:  first is the Christmas Corporate Business where your 15 person group competes for business supremacy and sells a Christmas product.  Second is an individual project where students try to invent a new technology or product and compete for a Mash-Up scholarship.  Finally, there is a small group project where groups of 2 or 3 students work together to create a business that sells products to everyone else in the school,  All profits the business makes goes to the students and to Grad.  Business skills that help you everyday of your life.
