Character-In-Action

Crescent’s Character-In-Action programs provide our boys with authentic opportunities to develop character outside of the classroom.
Character-In-Action

Business

Crescent’s Business Program, delivered through both the classroom and the co-curricular program (known as the Business Team), provides unique opportunities for our students to hone their business skills while engaging in real-life “character in action” situations where students lead, communicate, employ analytical and critical thinking skills and compete in high-pressure situations.

List of 3 items.

  • Business Program

    Our vision is to inspire a passion and excitement for business in our students through the Business Program and graduate amazing students who will have success in university and their careers.

    We will accomplish this through excellence in the classroom and by providing outstanding co-curricular experiences that will differentiate our graduates and provide a foundation for future business success.

    Our Business Program is delivered through two intertwined components: the Business Curriculum and the Crescent School Business Team.
  • Business Curriculum

    Crescent’s Business curriculum aims to inspire a passion for business. We devote a significant amount of time to current events, seeking to further develop student engagement with the world around them and bring textbook theory to life. We offer Economics (Grade 11, 12 and Advanced Placement), Accounting (Grade 11 and 12) and Business Entrepreneurship (Grade 11).
  • Crescent School Business Team

    Our Business Team, encompassing all of the business co-curricular activities, is an extension of our Business classroom. It’s the opportunity for students to use their classroom knowledge in real life and competition settings. Our Business Team activities include:

      • The Crescent School Investment Team is a demanding, year-long activity. It is a student-run and led, real-money investment portfolio. The Investment Team is now in its fifth year, and manages approximately $25,000. It exposes its members to the world of Canadian stocks, in particular the TSX 60. Students are responsible for developing the overall strategy of the portfolio, performing fundamental research and valuation analysis, assessing and recommending investments, and presenting to both the Investment Team and our Investment Committee.
      • Business Case Competitions offer serious business students an opportunity to compete with university-level cases in a co-ed environment. Crescent has hosted the Crescent School Invitational Business Case Competition since 2010, with eight to 10 independent girls’ and boys’ schools participating.
      • DECA is where many of our students first develop a passion for business, particularly those who get involved in Grade 9 or 10. Over 200,000 high school students worldwide compete in the DECA business competitions. Crescent competes at the regional, provincial and international levels of DECA.
      • The Entrepreneurship Club is new for 2016, a pilot project that seeks to foster an environment of innovation and entrepreneurship at Crescent.
      • Business Team Leadership Program: The Business Team Executive is an excellent training ground in leadership. It offers significant and real leadership opportunities where students are expected to lead, teach, motivate and run all Business Team activities. The Executive meets weekly.
      • The Junior Business Club meets weekly and gives Grade 9 and 10 students an introduction to Business Team activities, including investing and stock markets, and DECA.
