WELCOME TO THE ANCASTER HIGH SCHOOL HUMANITIES DEPARTMENT (Business and Family Studies)
 
Business
 
Business activity affects the daily lives of all Canadians as they work, spend, save, invest, travel, and play. It influences jobs, incomes, and opportunities for personal enterprise. Business has a significant effect on the standard of living and quality of life of Canadians, and on the environment in which they live and which future generations will inherit. Eventually, most students will encounter the world of business, whether they work in cities or towns or in rural areas. They must be prepared to engage in business activity with confidence and competence.

Young people need to understand how business functions, its role in our society, the opportunities it generates, the skills it requires, and the potential impact it can have on their lives and society, today and in the future.

The business studies program here at Ancaster High School will build a strong foundation for those who wish to move on to further study and training in specialized areas such as management, marketing, law, accounting, information technology, and computer applications. It will also provide practical skills for those who wish to move directly into the world of business.

Family Studies

The subject areas in the secondary Family Studies program (Social Sciences and Humanties) are concerned with how students view themselves, their families, their communities, and the broader society, and how they come to understand and respond to the world around them. Through practical experience (food-preparation skills), discussion, debate, research, reflection, and the development of critical and creative thinking skills, social sciences and humanities courses help students become self-motivated problem solvers equipped with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to face their changing world with confidence.
