Financial Fitness For Life
Lessons in finance are delivered to our students as early as Kindergarten. These lessons are fused into their every day curriculum. Whether it's Science, Math, Language Arts or Social Studies. Our children will learn good habits about earning, saving, investing, and building credit. Above all, our children will learn about and understand the power of giving back through Philanthropy. As we teach children to build strong, sustainable and successful careers, it will be ever so important to teach them to give back to their community. That will not only help keep them grounded, but allow them to have a direct impact on the communities that they live in.
Teaching Finance in The Classroom
Lessons in Finance
Our early learners, starting in K-2, will be introduced to lessons around, "Why do we use money?" In this lesson, students will define “money,” discuss why we need money, identify bills and coins, and consider how money is used.
When they start to enter 3rd - 5th grade, students will be able to identify key terms associated with earning money, explore ideas for earning money now, and evaluate various career options as sources of future income.
