BOSS offers two CTE pathways to New York State endorsement in Entrepreneurship and also in General Business Administration, with a major in Sports Management. BOSS is a member of NAF Academy of Finance.

We share responsibility, resolve conflicts, and are productive in teams.
We convey and defend our analysis, orally, graphically, and in writing.
