Personal Finance



Understanding and managing personal finances is critical to one’s future financial success. Experts agree that most students in high school and college lack proficiency in financial literacy. This course presents essential knowledge and skills to assist students in making informed decisions about real world financial issues. Topics to be covered include budgeting, banking, credit, investing, taxes, major purchasing decisions, insurance, career, and housing.  This one-semester course is based on the National Business Education standards for Personal Finance and the Jump$Start Coalition® for Personal Financial Literacy.
