East Lake High School is proud to announce that we now have a new CAPE Academy, the Academy of Business Careers. This academy allows students to take course strands in Web Design, Digital Design, Business Supervision, and Accounting. These strands are multiple courses that prepare the student to take one or more certification tests offered by the industry and are recognized as mastery of the subject area. Industry certifications currently offered include Microsoft Office Specialist, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Flash and Quick Books.
New course offerings have been implemented in Cybersecurity and are being considered in Marketing. Students can take multiple certification exams in multiple areas while taking classes that provide skills necessary to compete in the rapidly changing career environment. Employers are faced with having jobs to fill, but not enough skilled workers to do so. These certifications can make the difference! Students also have the chance to engage in Future Business Leaders of America also known as FBLA. The mission of East Lake High School’s Academy of Business Careers is “Preparing tomorrow’s business leaders by providing inspiration and academic direction through specialized instruction, industry certification and hands-on experience.”
Get involved with the Academy of Business Careers and get on a path to acquiring those necessary skills today. For more information contact Lynn Fetters, Business Education Department Chairman, at (727)942-5419, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
