Prepping students for success

Queen Anne’s County High School certifies 85-100 students per year.

We are preparing students to take a third-party test with higher standards that are recognized by industry and also by universities. The students pull for each other, and the teachers are cheerleaders as well. So many of our business students are holding that certification in their hands when they walk out of the building.
