Students enrolled in the Hillside High School Business and Finance Academy, a DPS Career-Technical Education program, focus on a concentrated study of the financial services industry. Our Academy supports the career clusters outline by the state of North Carolina for Business Management, Business Technology and Finance. We offer training relevant to the career cluster by offering specialized courses in finance and numerous enrichment activities. The activities give the students opportunity for an in-depth study of the financial services. This paves the way for a smooth transition from high school to advanced training programs, and eventually to careers in banking and finance or related fields.
