JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT Program Scope & Sequence
The gradually increasing complexity and sequence of JA programs at the elementary school level are evident in the following chart. JA Ourselves®, for example, is the first JA program and is usually offered at the kindergarten level.
The middle grades programs build on lessons the students learned in Junior Achievement's elementary school programs and help teens make difficult decisions about how to best prepare for their educational and professional future.
As students begin to prepare for their lives outside of secondary school, they are exposed to more advanced concepts through JA's high school programs.
