What to Expect

How you use Financial Basics is up to you: computer-enhanced "in the classroom" learning, online homework, extra credit opportunities, one-time seminars, or for any other purpose. Financial Basics is mapped to national financial literacy standards, so finding the right topic is always easy.

Financial Basics for High School is comprised of over a dozen mini-courses, each of which is graded and can be assigned in any order. You're free to use any or all of the topics - whatever helps you reach your financial education goals.

Each of your student's work is tracked automatically, so it's easy to verify that your assignments have been completed. Financial Basics also tracks aggregate participation for each class in real-time, helping you identify topics that may need further reinforcement. You're free to set up as many Classrooms as needed.

In addition to mini-courses, Financial Basics also includes a personalized budget calculator, a goal setting exercise, dozens of printable fact sheets, and a comprehensive library of entertaining Paying for College videos. And one of your students may even win a college scholarship!

It only takes a moment to register and set up your first classroom!
