The business curriculum helps students understand the daily functions, operations and responsibilities of a modern business, from both a local and global perspective. Students can choose from a wide range of courses to strengthen essential 21st Century Skills including communication, problem solving, financial literacy and computer-related technology. Through an innovative program with area business partners, seniors can also serve an internship during the day for high school credit.
Our goal is to prepare students for success in a variety of careers, advanced education and life-long learning, and to help them become more knowledgeable consumers, informed citizens and productive workers in today’s changing world.
Through Plymouth Whitemarsh High School's internship program, students get a taste of the real world work opportunities they'll have after high school. Businesses partner with Colonial to offer internships or job shadowing, serve as guest speakers or career day visitors, and work with teachers to create innovative lessons.
