The Academy of Business Management is designed to provide students an opportunity to select classes that will provide a foundation for many business careers. Many colleges consider these courses to be the “core” courses of any business degree. The wide variety of business classes available to BCHS students will prepare them for careers in law, management, human resources, marketing, technology, and entrepreneurship. Students who are unsure of their business specialty would be well served to select the Business Management Academy, where they will be able to “sample” many areas of business and find the one that best suits their career interests.
All BCHS students will take the standard core courses, but it is recommended that all students take English at the Pre-AP and AP level for all 4 years and all social studies courses at the Pre-AP and AP level through U.S. History. All students are encouraged to also take a senior capstone course called College Transitions. In this course, students will be walked through the process of researching and applying for college admissions, scholarships and other forms of financial aid, or exploring other post-secondary endeavors such as the military. The academy you choose will determine the sequence of business courses you will take over your 4 years at BCHS. Your counselor will work with you to ensure that you meet all graduation and academy requirements. BCHS students must complete 6 business credits prior to graduation and must be enrolled in at least one business class each year.
