The Financial Literacy 101 Financial Basics badge recognizes significant achievement in financial literacy education.
Our badge program certifies successful completion of Financial Basics for High School, a 15-course curriculum that's mapped to national financial literacy standards and covers dozens of topics required for financial success in college and beyond.
Most students earning certification spend between five and six hours studying the 45,000+ word curriculum. Many student complete the program as part of an in-the-classroom curriculum led by a high school teacher using our Classrooms platform, a classroom management tool that leveages class-specific survey and quiz responses for a true blended learning experience.
In the State of North Carolina, completion of this curriculum earns a state-recognized credential and we're working to bring this program to additional states.
Students earning Financial Basics Certification must demonstrate mastery of the following courses.
