Give your child the gift of knowing how to live debt free!  

   What would you do with $1,000,000? This class will help students make informed decisions about the money they do have and how to get and keep the money they earn for their future.

       The  Foundations of Personal Finance curriculum designed just for home schoolers relates directly to the teen and their experiences.  The Teacher adds meaningful examples, activities, discussions, financial planning projects and field trips (with the help of parent volunteers) to help the students stay engaged and motivated to take control of their financial future now!  This TEA approved curriculum will include the weekly viewing of Dave Ramsey's DVD, completing the student workbook, (purchase required $10-$17) and learning Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University principles to live debt free for life!

Class Description: from daveramsey.com:
 "Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance empowers students to make sound financial decisions for life." "… this is the premier curriculum for teaching high school students about money. Educators appreciate the turn-key system’s adherence to national and state standards, while students experience interactive learning with Dave’s practical, down-to-earth style."

"Personal finance expert Dave Ramsey teaches the course on DVD. Both engaging and entertaining, Ramsey walks students through the steps to financial peace, helping them prepare for the ups and downs of money before they enter adulthood. Students will see an immediate impact on their knowledge of personal finance."


A free and private class web page at myschoolbinder.com will provide students and parents with lesson plans, resources, assignment calendars, class summaries, discussion forums, and more, in a safe and secure environment.  The class web page will be the communication forum for the class and will allow students and parents to know exactly what is happening with the class, as well as providing families opportunities for further study at home. 
 Parents are encouraged to attend the first class if possible.
