Life Skills
Grades 7th-12th

This user-friendly series will help your high school student prepare for “adulting” in real life. The practical topics are up to date as far as technology, and yet, students will still learn how to write a check.

We will cover the following topics:

Credit Cards: deciding if a CC is a good idea for you, the application process, credit limits, minimum payments, interest, etc.

Budget: income vs. expenses, prioritizing, cost of college, family vs. individual, small business, etc.

Bank Account: checking/savings accounts, debit cards, online banking, banking apps, recording transactions, auto-pay, reading a bank statement, etc.

Bargain: grocery shopping, sales, major purchases, clothing, services, travel, etc. Checkbook: writing them (even for the current/next generation - they should at least know what a check is, right?), recording transactions, and balancing a bank statement.

Vehicle maintenance: how often to change the oil in your car, how often to have your tires rotated, basic car maintenance.

Supply List:

1.5” binder, dividers, binder paper or spiral notebook, calculator
