Business Education

The goal of the Business Department is to provide our students with a curriculum that will give them 21st century skills and the values necessary to be successful, both personally and within the career they choose.


  • Students will become “business literate” in respect to necessary vocabulary, the basics of personal and business finance, and the reading and understanding of business news.
  • Students will begin to develop values necessary for business and personal success including: conducting personal, academic, and business practices in an honest and ethical manner, and learning to respect others and appreciate the need to help others in the spirit of St. Joseph’s Academy.
  • Students will develop the skills necessary for business and personal success including: public speaking, professional relationship building, basic financial analysis, and gathering and presenting relevant business information on the computer.


One half credit of business education is required for graduation. The required 0.5 credit may be taken during sophomore, junior, or senior year from any business content course electives available within the department.
