    The Academy’s courses are heavily involved in DECA’s state, national, and international business competitions. Students have the opportunity to write a business plan for professional review, participate in MicroBank, found their own business, or work under the tutelage of a local business leader gaining an understanding of the industry and competitive environment of that enterprise. A final project will assess a specific business need of the firm followed by formulating and defending proposed solutions.
  • INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE


    Students will gain real world experience with a 90 hour internship in the hospitality and tourism industry.  Internships may feature hotel operations, food and beverage, tourist attractions, or entertainment depending upon the student’s area of interest.
  • ENDORSEMENT


    Faith Lutheran High School offers a B&E Endorsement that is added to a student’s transcript upon completion offering them a competitive advantage over traditional college freshmen. This B&E Endorsement will announce to universities that the student is proficient in what it takes to create, develop, and manage a successful business in today’s economy.
