Frequently Asked Questions
Is there training involved?
We require that all new teachers go through a teacher orientation. The orientation will take place at your school. With the updated curriculum, we also recommend returning teachers go through an in-person training as well.
How is the curriculum implemented?
The JA Finance Park experience begins in the classroom. Teachers cover 13 different lessons of personal finance curriculum. Once the classroom curriculum is completed, the program continues with a visit to our 5,500 square foot facility located inside American Furniture Warehouse or within your classroom with our virtual park simulation.
