Each student is uniquely made (Psalms 139:14) and given specific gifts (Romans 12:6) for the building up of Christ’s body. The Academy of Business seeks first to help each student discover those gifts and then begin to seek God for a career where those gifts can bring benefit to others as well as financial reward and life satisfaction (Ecclesiastes 3:13). In accord with this end, the academy offers students whose gifts and desires reflect an interest in the business oriented professions, an opportunity to explore those professions. Through dedicated classes, internships, and exposure to jobs in each area introduced, the Academy of Business will create learning and exploring opportunities for each student, while preparing them to be leaders in the vocation to which God is calling them.
