    G. W. Hewlett High School Business Education Department’s innovative course development provides a wide variety of opportunities for students. Students can take courses in the Marketing, Finance, Technology, Entrepreneurship, and Legal areas of business. Students can extend their core academic high school curriculum with course options that will help them meet the Hewlett-Woodmere student outcomes of critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity and gain valuable 21st Century skills. There are opportunities to gain college credits, explore areas of interest, develop skills, apply core academic skills to real world problems, and/or to satisfy Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies requirements for graduation.

    We offer courses in alignment with Syracuse University’s SUPA program in Accounting and Information Technology; LIU/CW Post in Business Law and Marketing; SUNY Farmingdale in International Business, Computer Programming, CISCO Networking, Money and Investments and Virtual Enterprise.

    There are many opportunities for students to meet the requirements of financial literacy which is an important life skill. Students can take courses in Money and Investments, Career and Financial Management, Financial Math or explore independent study options.

    The STEM offerings in computer technology are extensive. We provide opportunities for students to gain valuable general computer technology skills, knowledge of logic, programming and networking. Students can take college level credit courses in Information Technology, programming and CISCO and also participate in both AP Computer Science and AP Computer Science Principles.

    We currently offer two New York State Career and Technical endorsed programs in Small Business Administration through College Virtual Enterprise and Networking and Telecommunications through College CISCO Networking. Students successfully completing these programs earn this extra endorsement on their HS diploma. This credential allows them to strengthen not only their skill but their professional resume.

    Course work is includes many hands-on activities and interactive experiences, guest speakers and mentors as well as field trips and competitions. All students in grade 9 through 12 can benefit from our expansive Business Education program.
