Kings Academy Teaching Personal Finance

The King’s Academy is offering Dave Ramsey’s “Foundations in Personal Finance,” the premier curriculum for teaching financial literacy to students using interactive learning.

“The Dave Ramsey Foundation’s personal finance course has definitely been one of the most important and practical courses at the King’s Academy over the last 9 years,” said personal finance teacher Richie Leber. “As a teacher, I constantly hear parents say how much their kids are learning and conversing with them about the topics being discussed. I have also had a number of students in college or in their professional lives who say they are incorporating the things they have learned.”

A national radio talk show host and bestselling author, Ramsey is helping teach students the financial lessons their parents learned the hard way. Using the same concepts that are found in his books Financial Peace Revisited and The Total Money Makeover, Ramsey tailors the lessons to students by using fun, easy-to-understand methods. The class is taught on DVD by Ramsey and his daughter, Rachel Cruze.

“To graduate from high school, you have to know what an amoeba is but not how to balance your checkbook,” Ramsey said. “After years of listening to parents tell me their financial woes on the radio, it made sense to develop a program that would teach teenagers how to avoid their parents’ mistakes.”

More than 10,000 high schools and educational institutions are teaching students how to begin building wealth at an early age and how to avoid the pitfalls that lead to debt and even bankruptcy.
