Life After High School - Choices

Money management skills and preparation for college are extremely important! Without a proper plan, a student can spend much more time and money than is necessary in pursuit of a dream. This two-hour course is intended to review critical choices that high school students must make when leaving home for college and/or work. These choices (college, career, student loans, credit card use, saving & budgeting, internet & social media, cost of living, etc.) will become the scaffolding of their financial future. It is important that each choice is made with individual insight, thought and knowledge. This is an extremely condensed version of the 12-week course – Foundations in Personal Finance – High School and Beyond.
