                        Padua Franciscan offers a four-year MyTrack Business program for those students who want to further their education in the business field whether it be in accounting, entrepreneurship, marketing or finance. Students may also take all Business courses as electives.
The goal of the Business Department is to allow students who are anticipating a business career to acquire a solid foundation for college curricula. A wide range of electives affords students an introduction to the various disciplines of business.
MyTrack Business (see page 8 for Curriculum Sequence)
The MyTrack Business program promotes involvement in provided enrichment activities (such as Business Club and Speaker Series) and a practical experience (Mock interviews and External Shadowing), along with other activities as may be recommended by the MyTrack Business moderator or MyTrack Director.
MyTrack Business is fully compatible with the requirements of the MedTrack program. It is expected for a non-music MyTrack Business student to complete the Fine Arts path of Introductions to Drawing (grade 9) and either Graphic Design or Digital Media (grade 11).
The recommendation for a music student (Orchestra, Symphonic Band, Chorale) is to complete the minimum two credits of the vocal or instrumental sequence in grades 9 and 10 prior to entering the MyTrack sequence. There is a pathway to enter MyTrack Business after fulfilling the minimum two-year commitment to musical performance. In most cases, a continued four-year commitment to musical performance can be maintained with careful consideration of other elective options. Students should consult with their counselor as they consider their options for grades 11 and 12.
Semester 1/2 Credit Grades 9, 10
This course takes a survey-like approach to business principles and provides an opportunity for students to determine future business course selections. Students will explore several topics across the business curriculum: human resource management, career planning, economic systems and measurements, social responsibility, international business, marketing, accounting, and finance. The development of a strong business vocabulary will be emphasized.
