Computer Applications I: This is an orientation-level course designed to develop awareness and understanding
of the applications of Google Apps concepts and software. Instruction focuses on the use of software packages
that form a core used by any person employed in a business, marketing, or management occupations: word
processing, financial modeling, data-base management, some business graphics, and communication software.


Computer Applications II: The course is designed to help students better understand production of business
materials. Students will learn how to create graphics in such programs as Photopea, Inkscape which are free
online programs that are very similar to Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. The course will teach students

a film script format, and learn the process of pre and post production film making. Finally, students will
create a short film by the end of the semester.


Career Exploration: This is a class designed to help students interested in pursuing careers in the various
occupations. Students will explore what interests they have and conduct research on various careers that
match their interests. Students will also conduct mock interviews in preparation for the real situations
when they are applying for a position.


Intro to Business: Intro to Business is a class that will expose the interested student to many functions
of a modern business. We will gain a better understanding of concepts including economics, accounting,
finance, marketing, management, and organizational leadership.


Entrepreneurship: In Entrepreneurship class, students will gain the knowledge of how to start their own

Friendly reminder from Mrs. Jones- 

Lunch off campus is a privilege and we all want to continue to have it.  When you leave for lunch please stay on the sidewalk, follow the crossing arrows, social distance, and once you are on campus you MUST have your mask on. 
If you are eating outside, you need to sit at the tables until you are done.  We want to be here in person forever!  Please keep everyone healthy!  Go Blue Devils!
