Community Partnerships

Students learning from a gentleman at a table

An important part of DECA's focus on college and career preparation is our emphasis on creating a link between school and community, as well as between abstract academic content and real world experiences.  DECA firmly believes that a high school education should prepare students to respond to the real world.  Integrating community services, job shadows, internships and other networking experiences into the curriculum is a valued step in that direction. 

Drawing on staff, parents, and community resources,  DECA's goal is to build sustainable partnerships with community sponsors to accomplish our objectives.
