JA Finance Park Teachers | Junior Achievement of Greater St. Louis

JA Finance Park-Teachers

JA Finance Park offers 7th-12th grade students personal financial management skills through classroom instruction and active participation in a paperless, tablet-based, simulated community.  Students learn about the challenges of making adult decisions such as how to pay bills and manage their money for a family. The JA Finance Park traditional or project-based learning curriculum is composed of 13 required teacher-taught lessons that are easy to use.
The curriculum culminates in a hands-on, tablet-based budgeting simulation that is implemented at our A Finance Park facility with the assistance of volunteers who receive training for their roles at JA Finance Park.  The simulation is approximately 4½ hours long.

The One-Day Experience

High school students enrolled in a personal finance class are welcome to participate in the JA Finance Park simulation as a stand-alone, one-day experience (no curriculum required).
For more information, please email Joy Germeroth JA Finance Park Manager or call (636) 728-0707.
