Summer 2021


Billionaires Club and Economics, Leadership, and Entrepreneurship class description and class goal

Students are used to taking tests and learning what they are taught in school, but what’s lacking is the ability to apply all of these great ideas from math, science, literature, writing, speaking to become an independent human being who can make great decisions and become financially independent. 

Our goal is to give students the intellectual and decision-making tools that they need to become independent financially stable people by the time they finish high school.

Students will learn the basics of personal financial literacy, the elements of building a successful business, finance and investment through the eyes of an investor, and economic theory and history.

It all begins in elementary school with personal financial literacy and public speaking for business. In middle school, students transition to learning economics and practical business skills. Finally, at the high school level, students prep for AP Macro and Microeconomics while learning economic theory and history. 

Although what students learn is serious, this class is designed to be engaging and fun. This is not just a lecture class. Students learn through games, competitions, and group problem-solving.
