Financial Literacy is where students learn about real life skills. The students will be working on computers while learning how to create resumes, how to apply for jobs, how to balance their checking accounts, how to buy a home, how to invest for retirement, how to use on line banking, and how to complete a number of other life skill tasks. This class should be both fun and rewarding for each student. This class will also challenge the student with being responsible and keeping dealines in order to be successful despite the numerous responsibilities that adults will face every day. This class should help to mold their future decision making processes and help the student with their future success.
