The primary purpose of Business and Finance Technology at Northwestern Regional School is to provide the students with the skills and knowledge needed to perform successfully in today’s high performance workplace. Educational goals focus on developing skills to effectively utilize resources, information systems and technology.
An Honors Banking Program is offered for students to gain real-world experience, employability skills, work ethics, and money management skills through training and employment in an on-site bank branch of Northwest Community Bank. This is the first of its kind in the state! Students also complete an Honors/College Level course to gain useful banking and financial knowledge. The Business Finance and Technology Department partners with the New Hartford Business Council to offer an Internship Program where interested students are able to gain knowledge and experience for 13 weeks in a field of their choice. A chapter of Future Business Leaders of America is open to students in grades 9-12. These resources, along with the business courses offered, will give students the competitive edge in today’s job market or in preparation for the rigors of college coursework.
Northwestern Regional #7 High School is a participating school district with the University of Connecticut. Students enrolled in and successfully completing Microeconomic or Macroeconomics may earn college credits from UCONN. Several courses offered also satisfy social studies and math credits required for high school graduation.
