Personal Financial Education for all ages
The Financial Academy at North Point School provides students with economic and personal financial literacy lessons. This state-of-the-art program is designed to engage a student’s understanding of financial literacy as a critical life-skill.
Financial Fridays at North Point consist of weekly personal financial lessons that include instructional materials, video presentations, activities, integrated testing and student recognition. Lessons are geared towards specific age-group: K-2, Grade 3-6 and Grades 7-9.
Our comprehensive classroom-tested curriculum, teaching pedagogy and instructional materials meet the highest standards of personal financial education for Grades K-9. Classroom instruction is delivered by qualified financial education instructors using learning techniques that motivate and inspire students to make life-long financially responsible decisions.
The Financial Academy showcases North Point’s continued development of unique and forward-thinking learning environments that use best practices and are developed specifically for each grade level.
At the annual “Boys in Business” © Business Fair, young entrepreneurs in Grades K-9 showcase and sell their creations to the local community.
Hosted by North Point School, this event held in June each year is the culmination of months of planning and hard work by our students as part of the Financial Academy curriculum. They plan, create and launch a student-business to sell their products or services at this one-day business fair. Students keep the money they earn.
The Boys in Business Fair is a key component of the Financial Academy curriculum taught at North Point.
