The economics and finance course is one of two elective courses offered at the high school level. High school economics and finance is taught using a combination of multimedia lessons, instructional videos, worksheets, quizzes, tests and both online and offline projects, designed to help students understand both economics and the importance of financial responsibility, in college and beyond.
The economics and personal finance course introduces students to the basics of economics and the many facets of responsible money management. Students look at micro, macro and international economics on a global scale. Personal finance activities teach students how to balance a checkbook, avoid debt, save for home ownership, prepare for retirement, and perform investments using a program designed to simulate real stock market transactions. This course is designed to help students understand economics as a whole, and the importance of financial responsibility, both in college and beyond.
