About the Course


Course Description:

Students will learn the money skills they’ll use now and for the rest of their lives so they’ll have a solid

foundation when they’re out on their own. This course trades boring formulas and financial theories for time-tested principles, and real-life applications. Students will complete assignments that will reinforce money and finance skills that they learn throughout the year. In the 2nd semester Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Entrepreneurship will be introduced. This 4-6 week module will provide students with an overview of entrepreneurship, what it is, and the skills necessary to be successful.

Course Objective:

This course is designed to help students learn about various

financial decisions they will be faced with in life. Some of the topics to be covered
