Lakeville North to open business academies

Lakeville North High School has created two new business academies set to open the beginning of the 2013-14 school year.

The academies will offer students hands-on experience in business as well as the ability to maintain their current coursework through other departments at the high school.

• Advanced Business Academy or ABA is geared for high-achieving business-minded students who desire rigorous coursework.

• Career-Oriented Business Readiness Academy or COBRA is geared for students who want to explore many aspects of business with hands-on learning that can be used immediately in the workforce.

Both academies will allow students to gain actual experience in a work setting.

Information regarding the academies will be presented at the parent registration meetings in the LNHS auditorium Jan. 28 at 6:30 and 8 p.m. and Jan. 31 at 6 p.m.
