Glendale Business provides both entry level courses that introduce students to common business tools and senior level courses which prepare students for careers and further studies in Marketing, Accounting, Law, Entrepreneurship, International Business, and Sports & Entertainment Marketing.

Glendale students are two-time winners of the district’s Mock Trial Competition and distinguish themselves amongst their peers and members of Hamilton’s legal community. Marketing students have run successful ‘Green Glendale’ Campaigns and also help advertise various school events and projects. Accounting students are well prepared for further studies which lead to professional designations, and our Sports & Entertainment Marketing students explore potential career opportunities in one of the largest growing industries.


Family Studies at Glendale focuses on skills that students can carry on throughout life.

Our focus on healthy nutrition and life choices gives students opportunity to create tasteful and creative meals in our fully equipped kitchens. Our Take a Baby Home program offers students the chance to ‘parent’ a doll-child for a weekend and get an in-depth experience that teaches them more than any textbook. Extended teaching in our Parenting course and Living and Working with Children course helps teens develop life-long skills that have both personal and career applications.
