Student Testimonials

"I've been in the CFE's financial literacy program at Basic Academy for the past 3 years, and I've learned so much that I will ACTUALLY use in life. Every student should have the opportunity to learn this!" 

- Hailey M.

"This year's financial classes helped me decide the next steps I'm going to take after high school, and how I can plan to pay for my college classes." 

- Owen D.

"My experience today at Mad City Money [sic] was really eye-opening because I never knew how much money you need to live comfortably without going into a lot of debt." 

- Jessica O.
