We understand that as a community we are worried about the current extended break causing students to fall behind. The curriculum contained in all Junior Achievement programming aligns with Common Core State Standards, National Standards for Financial Literacy, and 21st Century Skills. We have worked hard over the past week to make version of our curriculum available to our community in order to support the educational achievement goals of students.
