Welcome Parents & Students!

21st Century Life Skills & Financial Literacy is designed to strengthen a students understanding of how a simple economy functions in our world. Students will participate in a simulated economy and learn the importance of education in career decisions, financial responsibility in managing money, setting goals in order to achieve success, and working collaboratively with others to achieve one’s goals. This generation of students will face many fiscal and economic challenges in their lifetime, the likes of which have rarely been seen before. 

Students must understand the basic underlying principals of how an economy works from an early age so that they may make appropriate financial decisions in their own lives when the time comes. This course will seek to provide students with the knowledge of how an economy functions in simple easy to understand terms and give them a foundation for more advanced study in grades 9 through 12 and beyond.
