About the Class
Take Charge is an integrated careers and personal finance course taken during the junior year. Students will set goals and adjust their personal learning plan by identifying their interests, skills and values through academic and career decision-making. Students will develop understanding and skills in money management, budgeting, financial goal attainment, use of credit, insurance, investments and consumer rights and responsibilities. The Take Charge class will help students create and implement their plan for an effective transition from high school to postsecondary education, the workforce, or military based on knowledge of self, career goals and financial consideration.
