Accounting and Finance
Accounting & Finance students learn the basic principles of the accounting cycle, which includes analyzing transactions, journalizing, preparing closing entries, generating a trial balance, and preparing financial statements. Students will also gain an understanding of stocks, bonds, and other tradable instruments, and the markets in which they are traded. Understanding keys to decision making, whether it be financial, corporate, or personal will be fundamental to the program. Participation in FBLA will further develop skills in communication and business.
