Next Gen Personal Finance, a non-profit on a mission to bring financial education to every high schooler in America, has named Berlin High School one of 887 Gold Standard schools. Gold Standard is the highest rank given to schools in NGPF’s Got Finance? School Search Tool, which distills data from over 11,000 course catalogues to rank high schools for their access to personal finance courses.
Including students in Alabama, Missouri, Tennessee, Utah and Virginia, which have state graduation requirements for personal finance, just 1 in 6 U.S. students is required to take personal finance to graduate.
Next Gen Personal Finance, has become the "one-stop shop" for over 1 4,000 financial educators looking for high-quality, engaging curriculum to equip students with skills to thrive in their future. Fifty percent of U.S. high school students currently attend a school where a teacher is using NGPF curriculum.
NGPF invests in teachers through their “50 in 50” campaign, bringing a one-day teacher FinCamp to every state during the 2018-19 school year.
NGPF is recognized by Common Sense Education as a “Top Website for Teachers to Find Lesson Plans.”
