The Corporate Center for Business & Technology is designed to prepare students with the skills needed for success in college and the workplace through coursework combining, technology, business, and academics. At Corporate, students will have the option of choosing one of two programs:
ENTREPRENEURSHIP or SOFTWARE ENGINEERING
Students are provided with three full years of content specific to Entrepreneurship or Software Engineering. Although the programs are aligned in two separate tracks, many curriculum elements can be found in both programs.
The Entrepreneurship track utilizes the Virtual Enterprise International program, a project based, global business simulation that provides students with the experience of starting and running a viable business venture. It is one of the first programs at New Dorp High School to be accredited by the NYS Education Department to offer a Career and Technical Education (CTE) endorsement on a graduate’s Regents Diploma. In our nationally ranked Virtual Enterprise (VE) program, students may participate in various competitions and events, including representing New Dorp HS at trade fairs in California, Tennessee and Germany. Internships, scholarships and college level courses are also available to VE students
The Software Engineering Program (SEP) is a computer science and software engineering curriculum prepares students for new and emerging interdisciplinary high-tech fields. Students enrolled in the Software Engineering Program are introduced to robotics, web design, computer processing, 3D printing and design as well as several coding languages. In the Software Engineering Program, students participate in hack-a-thons and learn to solve real-world problems using their software engineering skills.
All Advanced Placement and College Level courses are available to qualified students.
