Finance Park

Finance Park
  • Finance Park is a reality based, hands-on simulation for students that enables them to build foundations for making intelligent lifelong personal finance decisions.  It also allows them to develop a realistic understanding of the economic issues they must deal with upon graduation from high school and in the development of a budget. At the culmination of a two week, integrated unit in school classrooms, students visit Finance Park to study different financial decisions to be made, consider the options available to them and actually construct a personal budget.  To facilitate the simulation, Finance Park focuses on decisions about transportation, investment, home improvement, banking, housing, entertainment, healthcare, utilities, food, home furnishings, clothing and education.
