Enriched Academy: Financial Literacy for GradsPosted on
Livingstone Range School Division wants to help ensure that all students have opportunities to succeed. One of the three key areas of the Livingstone Range School Division Student Success Plan 2021-2024 is “21st Century Knowledge, Skills, and Attributes (Life Skills).” An important part of these life skills is financial literacy. With the impacts our economy has had over the last two years, understanding the basics of money management has never been more important.
We are excited to introduce a new resource for students this year to learn about money: Enriched Academy. Enriched Academy is fully funded by the Alberta government for all graduating students and is Canada’s leading online personal financial education program, providing financial literacy training through online courses and tools. Enriched Academy covers budgeting, credit cards, credit score, student loans, investing, insurance, taxes, and much more.
We are happy to announce that all 2023 high school graduates will receive a personal license for Enriched Academy with lifetime access to the program. The self-paced modules and tools will allow them to complete the course this year or upon graduation. A completion certificate can be added to the student's resume, and students who complete the course can qualify for scholarship opportunities!
We hope this program will help prepare our graduates for the future, wherever their journey will take them.
