  • Business Education


    The primary mission of business education is to provide instruction for and about business. The discipline of business education prepares students to become contributing citizens who are capable of making astute personal economic decisions. In business education classrooms, students learn the basics of personal finance, develop techniques for making wise consumer decisions, master economic principles, and learn how businesses operate. In addition, business educators play a prominent role in developing the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for students to succeed in the workforce. Further, business education courses provide the impetus for students to successfully complete college programs in several business areas.


    At Dr. Henry A. Wise, Jr. High School, the Business, Computer Management Services and Career Technical Education programs are designed to expose students to basic concepts and possible career opportunities in the field of business and technical education. The curriculum allows students to learn and develop skills in computer software application, entrepreneurship, accounting and business management.
