What is JUNIOR MARKETING ?
Students can take the Marketing Applications course as a junior. This course is ONE in-class period, but counts for 1.5 credits due to the additional time, field trips and projects outside of class. Students will learn about marketing content, as well as participate in a lot of project-based learning including assisting with the creation of custom apparel through our student-run Orange Apparel Company.
*School Store – Fort Orange is our student-run, school-based enterprise operated by the students in the OOHS Marketing program. Moving into the 2022-23 school year, marketing students will also create custom apparel through Orange Apparel Co, which will be sold in the school store and on our online store.
*DECA- our co-curricular association for students enrolled in Marketing. DECA offers many opportunities to learn about business and compete in business competitions. Students may compete at the district, state and national levels. Visit our OOHS DECA page or the DECA websites www.deca.org for more information about DECA.
