DECA's Comprehensive Learning Program offers opportunities for exciting classroom activities that connect your instruction to college and careers. DECA is an integral part of classroom instruction, not something extra to be done outside of class. DECA's Comprehensive Learning Program enhances the possibility that a greater range of student cognitive abilities are developed. It also incorporates rigor and relevance through the various activities. When using components of the comprehensive learning program as application or extended learning activities, student members are engaged in the major categories of the cognitive domain.
