Pay to all what is due them—taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, honour to whom honour is due.

Romans 13:7

Curriculum intent

In Business we aim to prepare students to become responsible citizens, capable of making the astute economic decisions that will benefit their personal and professional lives. We will introduce students to the basics of personal finance, the decision-making techniques needed to be wise consumers, the economic principles of an increasingly international marketplace, and the processes by which businesses operate. In addition, we aim to provide a solid educational foundation for students who want to successfully complete college programs in various business disciplines. 

Our focus is on continuous quality education based on; 

  • All students need to be literate in business and economics. 
  • All students need to practice the interpersonal, teamwork, and leadership skills that will help them function successfully in that environment. 
  • All students need to hone the lifelong learning skills that foster flexible career paths and confidence in adapting to a workplace that demands constant retooling. 
  • All students will have the opportunity to master the fundamental knowledge and skills needed to succeed in business—and more importantly, an equal opportunity to succeed in life.
