JA Finance Park | Junior Achievement of Greater St. Louis

JA Finance Park

JA Finance Park gives 7th - 12th-grade students the rare opportunity to experience their personal financial futures first-hand. Upon entering the center, students receive a ‘life situation' with job, income, education, and family scenarios. Based on their adult persona, students visit businesses in the simulation to gather information to make financial decisions, such as managing a household budget, using banking services, and making purchasing and investment decisions while using tablet-based technology.
 

Bringing Education to Life

The experience begins in the classroom with four weeks of JA-provided curriculum that culminates with a day at JA Finance Park. The center is designed as an interactive marketplace representative of the local business community, including financial services, media, telecommunications, utilities, and more. The center is authentic and interactive to create a transformational experience for all students.  Read more on how JA Finance Park increases student financial capability
