Spartan School of Business and Finance

Welcome to the Spartan School of Business and Finance
Founded in 2017, the Spartan School of Business and Finance (SSoBF) focuses on business and finance studies. The mission of the school is to prepare students for a 21st century workplace by offering relevant academic subjects and linking students to the outside world and potential future career paths.

The Spartan School of Business and Finance offers a four-year program that provides an opportunity to earn up to 15 college credits in collaboration with Georgian Court University by incorporating honors-level business courses at each grade level. Students develop into a cohort by attending a Summer Bridge Experience. Through partnerships with local companies and organizations, students will participate in real-life applications through structured learning experiences. Upon completion, all students will qualify for Quickbooks Pro Certification.

In addition, students participate in DECA, where they have an opportunity to compete against students throughout the country in business related competitions. They will serve on advisory panels and be a part of the decision making process, taking ownership of the educational process.
