This Personal Finance curriculum is adapted from the Take Charge Today! curriculum provided by the Take Charge America Institute for Consumer Financial Education and Research which focuses on creating research-based education programs to improve consumers’ financial literacy and help consumers make informed financial choices in today’s complex markets.
The Institute’s mission is to create research-based educational outreach programs to improve financial literacy and help consumers to make informed financial choices in today’s complex markets. The TCAI has focused its efforts on educating young people how to manage their finances and make informed choices as they move into adult life. 

We will also be participating in H&R Block's real-life simulation "Budget Challenge". Where students learn how to manage their money, pay bills and learn the importance of saving.
Student will have the opportunity to earn two Financial Literacy certifications during the semester. One is through EverFi and the other is the W!SE certification.
