  • The Syosset High School Business Department program of instruction is designed to offer students the opportunity to explore career options and develop computer skills. The Syosset High School business program is a “mini-university” where they may earn up to 36 college credits before graduating from high school. Business students are introduced to careers in law, management, marketing, real estate, finance, entrepreneurship, and accounting. Successful real estate students will receive a certificate qualifying them to sit for the NYS Real Estate Sales Associate Licensing Examination. The social studies graduation economics requirement will be fulfilled by taking the College Business Economics course. DECA, Investment Club and Entrepreneurship Club are our award winning business clubs and students are encouraged to participate. Our Cooperative Work Experience and Internship programs offer students employment opportunities in school and within the local business community. 

    Contact members of the business department, guidance counselors and/or the Business Department Administrator for additional information on this exciting group of electives. All students interested in an Advanced Regents Diploma may choose to complete a five-unit sequence option in Business.

    WORK-BASED LEARNING 

    The Syosset High School Work-Based Learning Program gives local businesses the opportunity to make a difference within the community by employing and mentoring our young, motivated, hard-working students. Our students will receive employment training and have the opportunity to implement that training on the job, as wage earning employees or an intern in a formal internship program recognized by New York State.

    INTERNSHIP & JOB OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE!

    If you are interested in exploring a career and getting a HS credit, see Mr. Fiasconaro in the Business Education Office about internship or job opportunities. Stop in and make an appointment to learn more about our internship program and get an application. This opportunity is for Juniors, Seniors or Sophomores who are getting an early jump for a Summer internship. 

    Additionally, if you are currently working outside of school or looking for a position, come see Mr. Fiasconaro to discuss how you can earn a grade and HS credit while working as part of our Work Experience Program.
