DECA is a co-curricular organization that prepares emerging business/marketing students to become leaders and entrepreneurs for their future careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. DECA supports Waukesha South’s school mission by complimenting South’s business and marketing courses and offering a wide variety of competitions, volunteer experiences, leadership opportunities, and chapter activities that help students learn, grow and succeed in ways that fit their personal learning styles and career goals. DECA also develops’ skills and knowledge to make them career and college ready after leaving Waukesha South High School.

WHO SHOULD CONSIDER JOINING: Students interested in learning more about marketing, management, entrepreneurship, finance, and leadership

DECA members and officers advertise at South’s open house events, 8th grade open house, freshman first day, and various other events. We send information to the business/marketing teachers at the middle schools as well. Parents of students in business/marketing classes receive Infinite Campus announcements about DECA opportunities and events. Students in business/marketing classes receive invitations to attend DECA meetings and events in their classes.  ANY student that is interested, or any parent looking for more information, should simply reach out!
