JA Financial Literacy for Indiana


Starting with the students anticipated to graduate in 2028, it is mandated that individuals must successfully finish a personal financial responsibility course before being eligible for graduation. The legislation establishes specific content requirements for the course and dictates that public schools, charter schools, or state-accredited nonpublic schools must incorporate instruction on this course as a distinct subject.

How Can JA Help?

Junior Achievement has developed a course that meets the state requirements for this legislative bill.

The JA Financial Literacy course for Indiana offers invaluable support to educators by providing comprehensive resources and interactive materials designed to teach financial literacy in an engaging and practical way. The course is designed to equip educators with ready-to-use curriculum materials, hands-on budgeting simulation, and real-world project scenarios, making it easier for them to deliver impactful lessons on financial concepts.

By leveraging Junior Achievement resources, educators can enhance their students' understanding of financial literacy, helping to build a strong foundation for financial responsibility and decision-making.
