Economics is real life—it’s all about how people make choices every day and how those decisions influence policies being made in business and government.

They will be challenged to think about the world around them and gain an understanding of economic principles that will not only prepare them for college but more importantly, for life!

Our weekly class times will include discussion, class activities, guest speakers and lots of engaging video to enrich the reading material.
