Intuit for Education FAQs
Intuit for Education helps today's generation of students become financially literate. Intuit for Education is designed for high schoolers and offers a flexible, interactive curriculum with “real-world tools,” to get students excited about personal finance.
Just 1 in 4 students in the United States have access to a quality financial literacy education. Financial literacy helps individuals build the confidence to manage financial situations, by learning how to avoid making mistakes and handling unforeseen expenses. Source
Intuit for Education and its curriculum vary in a few key ways. First, we lead with 30-second to 2-minute videos to suit your students' learning needs.
