Middle school is an excellent time to start learning about money management which helps in creating a foundation for students to become financially independent in their lives later. Since there are no courses about financial literacy in our k-12 curriculum, and it is a very important skill to have, students must seek supplement education. Our personal finance series is the solution. This course teaches the different types of vehicles in which they can invest their money to grow. They learn the risks and returns involved in each of the types of investments, as well as understand the strategies to use before selecting any method. Is Certificate of Deposit or the Stock market the way to go? These are questions students will know how to answer! Students play a fun and practical stock market game throughout the course to understand the risks of investments. Empowerment through personal finance builds a secure future. Start early!
