DECA is an international association of high school and college students studying marketing, management and entrepreneurship in business, finance, hospitality and marketing sales and service.


    DECA students participate in a wide variety of school-based activities designed to help students understand business and marketing functions. Students compete on a district, state and international level, fundraise for national charities, operate student stores, and work with local business people to run major events and much more!


    To be part of DECA all you need to do is turn in your $20.00 registration dues no later than October 14, 2019. This will allow you to participate in DECA at all levels from local to the international level.


    Students who enjoy competing in their specific competency area should strongly consider registering for either Principles of Business, Intro to Marketing, Personal Finance, or Accounting for the next school year. These courses help build the foundation of knowledge you will need to be successful in DECA competition.


    Our first competition is in December, 2019 and will be held in King of Prussia. Everyone who joins DECA is strongly encouraged to attend this event and see what it is all about.
