Why Business Courses Are Important in Secondary School

Studying Business at the secondary school level is important because of the many career opportunities business provides. Not only do the skills and knowledge help you become a more informed consumer, courses in Business Studies will give you the tools to market yourself effectively, regardless of your field of choice. Furthermore, studying how business is viewed by the society and how it works in an increasingly global environment is part of becoming an educated individual. Students interested in increasing their employability and improving their chances of securing an interesting career would do well to take business courses.    

At Richmond Hill High School, we offer a wide variety of Business Courses at all levels and all grades. The diversity of our programming and teaching expertise gives students a wide perspective of business and law related topics and careers.  

Certificate of Endorsement in Business Studies

Students who earn a minimum of 5 Business credits over their years at high school, will receive a Certificate of Endorsement in Business Studies upon graduating. Employers and post-secondary institutions will recognize that the individual student took a concentration of business and law related courses in their studies and has had a diverse exposure to business related skills and areas. Please see the Head of the Department for specific details and certificate requirements.
