Business Department Overview


    Wappingers Central School District offers a wide variety of elective courses in Business Education to meet the needs of our diverse student body. All of our courses are grounded in practical topics that ordinary American adults use on a regular basis on the job or in managing their personal lives.

    After taking a business class, students often report that they learned a lot about the possibilities for a future career.  As teachers, we love to see our students dream big about the places that they will go, and we hope that they will implement the skills and knowledge that they learned in business classes to make their college experiences easier and their personal lives even more successful.
