Herricks Spring Dateline 2020
A World of Business at Herricks HS
An entire subdivision of the business world exists within Herricks High School, where an assortment of programs equips students
with viable business skills and experiences. Opportunities prepare them for success in the future and help them determine their college and career paths. While a variety of business courses provide background content, two specific programs enable it to be used in authentic settings. DECA and Virtual Enterprise have both proven to be successful, with consistent student achievements and awards.
