Classroom Programs

We do this through our relevant, experiential curriculum that begins in elementary school, where students learn how they can impact the world around them as individuals, workers and consumers. Our programs continue through the middle grades and high school, where we focus on key content areas of financial literacy, college and career readiness and entrepreneurship. In all JA programs, students process information, apply basic skills, think critically and solve complex problems.

Read how our programs correlate to the Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards for social studies and math for grades K-12 as well as the Common Core State Standards in English/ Language Arts.
