What Students are Saying...
"When taking Accounting in High School I found it difficult but rewarding in the end. Sitting in class in college I found myself ahead of those next to me, because of High School. Overall, the business department helped me excel in the college environment, and I am thankful" ~Ben Lopez, Class of 2018
“Accounting is the language of business, and having an understanding of accounting concepts early in one’s life can be beneficial regardless of one’s chosen career path. Accounting is used by professionals in almost every field to organize information and make smart decisions. I highly recommend this class for motivated students who enjoy problem solving. As a college level business student, taking this class in high school set me ahead of my peers and contributed to my success in the classroom and in my search for internships.” ~Maxwell Ughu, Masters of Finance student, Bentley University
