Course Description
Accounting I

Accounting covers the financial aspect of business.  It is the process of receiving and expending cash as well as moving cash to specific areas of a business.  This course covers the basic principles of bookkeeping for a service business and merchandising business.   Basic principles include the accounting equation, journalizing & posting, financial statements, and the accounting cycle.

Accounting II

Accounting II is a continuum of material from Accounting I. Topics covered in Accounting II includes accounting for uncollectible accounts, accounting for plant assets/depreciation, notes payable/receivable, and corporate accounting.

Intro to Business

Students are introduced to the world of business.  Introduction to Business covers the types of businesses in our economy as well as how they operate.  This course also helps students understand the roles of consumers in business’ decision making and their roles of citizenship.  Other topics covered are an introduction to consumer credit, stock markets, and banking.


Entrepreneurship is an independent, self-guided course for students who are interested in organizing a start-up business.  Each student has a business professional as a mentor who assists them with business questions as well as an academic advisor who helps with the overall direction of their coursework.  Students complete the necessary requirements for the course almost entirely independently. At the end of the semester, the student will present their business proposal to a committee of administrators, teachers, and business members in a formal presentation setting.
