“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
The Business Program
For more than 100 years, St. Joseph High School has been preparing young women for leadership in business. As times changed, so did SJHS. In 1936, the school expanded to a four-year business program including an academic core designed for college preparation. Today, the SJHS business program reflects a changing world with endless professional opportunities.
Staying true to its mission of producing responsible global citizens, the SJHS business program provides a moral foundation for learning and leadership in management, international business, marketing, accounting, information and communication technology and entrepreneurship.
The Five Critical Areas of Learning in the SJHS Business Program
- Business skills:
- Communication in a business environment.
- Digital literacy.
- Financial literacy.
- Ethical, moral and legal considerations in business.
