PERSONAL FINANCE CLASS
We are so excited to be adding a high school Personal Finance program to our association this coming fall.

Once again, we have done our best to keep our fees reasonable and affordable for our homeschooling community. Our fees are as follows: (Please see below for a description of each course)
Personal Finance Class (9th - 12th grade)
"Why learn to manage my money? I'm just a teenager; I don't have much of it anyway."
Sounds reasonable, but it's not.
Think about this: The average American teenager spends $3,000 per year. At the end of high school, that means you'll have spent $21,000. Do you know where you're spending it?
While $3,000 per year is most likely a lot less than your parents spend, you should still be able to:
- Pay fair prices for quality items
- Avoid being ripped off by misleading ads and salespeople
- Stay out of debt
- Save up for a car, college, or your own business
- Give money that will make a difference in the world
- Have money to do fun things with your friends
