• DECA is an International Association of Marketing Students developed to recognize and encourage accomplishments in the areas of entrepreneurship, leadership, marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools around the globe. DECA is preparing emerging leaders to be college and career ready. All members must be enrolled in a Career and Technical Education (CTE) Marketing Education Program as well as be current on local, state, and national dues. All members must apply through the DECA adviser and councilors as program availability is limited to sixty juniors (60) and up to thirty (30) seniors.

    With nearly a 70-year history, DECA has impacted the lives of more than ten million students, educators, school administrators and business professionals since it was founded in 1946. Their strong connection with our organization has resonated into a brand that people identify as a remarkable experience in the preparation of emerging leaders and entrepreneurs. DECA’s programs and activities have constantly evolved as we use the latest technology and apply cutting edge educational research. Our core focus has remained consistent and is captured in our mission.
