During each two-hour meeting of the Personal Finance Certificate class, students will learn how to manage a personal budget while taking a critical look at how financial institutions affect our lives. Our Personal Finance class will give you the opportunity to explore why money affects our lives in the way it does. We will give you tools to help you to stay on top of your bills, manage credit, and pay for the plans you make after high school.
