Business Focus Option

The Business Focus Option is a four-year program leading its graduates toward college business schools and professional careers. This interdisciplinary program provides specialty concentrations in accounting, marketing, office systems and computer technology.

This Focus Option:

  • Features opportunities for students to increase business knowledge, interpersonal skills, oral and written communication skills.
  • Incorporates classroom business concepts and computer applications with hands-on, community-based training projects, internships, Future Business Leaders of America, and actual case studies.
  • Allows students to earn college credit through PCC for computer coursework.


As of January 2010, the district will no longer designate transfer slots for specific school-based programs (such as Cleveland's International Baccalaureate or Business Focus Option) as part of the 2010 lottery. Students who do not live in the Cleveland attendance area and who wish to transfer to Cleveland High School will need to complete the PPS lottery form and apply for the "regular program". Once students are selected by the lottery to attend Cleveland, they may then forecast for pre-IB and/or Business Focus Option classes.
