On Monday, December 11, Monday, March 12 and Wednesday, March 14, over 275 County Prep students participated in a financial literacy program entitled “Finance Park” sponsored by Junior Achievement. County Prep students were privileged to vist Junior Achievement’s brand new state-of-the-art facility located in Edison, NJ. The students engaged in an intensive, high-energy immersion learning experience in which they received a fictional life situation and created a balanced monthly budget. The activities reinforced NJ’s Core Curriculum Content Standards while focusing on important elements of money management and career exploration. The event boosted the students’ confidence in making smart academic and economic decisions.
