Teaching personal finance in the classroom just got easier

Our new finance curriculum helps students get introduced to the foundations of personal finance. Before being able to successfully bring financial topics to life in their own lives, they need to be able to understand basic financial topics like credit scores and debt. 


We know that personal finance is not a requirement for most schools, so trying to find time to integrate it into your curriculum can be difficult. We created a course that is meant to be either teacher or student-led, asynchronous in the classroom or at home, and is mobile-friendly first.

This inequitable distribution of personal finance education will likely widen the existing racial and socioeconomic gaps in our communities1. Intuit is on a mission to bridge this gap and provide access to quality personal finance education for all students.
