Students learn the techniques of using on-line resources to do research. Students’ exposure to the business and technology department does not end after their first year at Holy Angels. The department offers electives that enhance a student’s computer skills while emphasizing decision making, collaboration and time management strategies. Several business classes are offered in which students learn a variety of topics such as: accounting concepts, financial records, pricing and promotion, advertising, marketing, budgeting, banking, spending, saving and investing. All business electives are highly suggested for those students anticipating studying business at the college level.
In our most exciting innovation, the e-portfolio, students create an introductory electronic portfolio. Similar to an artist’s portfolio of sketch work or a writer’s portfolio of creative writings, an electronic portfolio is a digital accumulation of a student’s best work over her 4 years at Holy Angels. This electronic portfolio may be linked to college applications in order to showcase additional attributes.
