BUSINESS PATHWAY

Offering Real World Authentic Learning
The Don Bosco Prep Business Pathway is designed to offer real-world, authentic learning opportunities. Students will understand how a business is organized, how they operate, and their role in a capitalist society. 

They will learn how to create a business entity, how to finance a start-up, how to prepare and evaluate income statements and balance sheets, how to create a marketing plan, and the economic implications of entrepreneurship in society. 

The students will explore future career possibilities in business by talking with and observing people in the business world.  Guest industry experts will discuss their fields either in the classroom or on site visits.

Our goal is to create leaders and entrepreneurs who understand and appreciate their role in society. The curriculum and experiential learning opportunities complement our scholastic philosophy to form well-educated and well-rounded young men prepared to succeed in college, business, and life.
