Learn How to Financially Function in the Real World
As you advance through Upper School and before you leave for college, you will want the confidence and preparation to understand the practical elements of financial literacy and responsibility. This course will be entirely interactive and project-based, providing hands on opportunities for students to experience an understanding of the world we live in. We will discuss how to balance and live under a budget and the path to financial independence, how to understand our system of credit (including the incredible importance of maintaining excellent credit), how to properly manage and maintain bank accounts, and how to buy a car, among other topics. No credit.
