Teacher Comments:

"This program checks all boxes. It’s user friendly, interesting, informative and presents information in a way that is appealing to high school students. It’s not too often that class material receives rave reviews, but the Enriched Academy was very well received and as a bonus, I learned a great deal myself. I’m looking forward to sharing this opportunity again next semester with my new classes."

Jenn Jackson
CALM Teacher at Grande Prairie Composite High School

"The Enriched Academy program fills a void that is normally very tough to fulfill in the Alberta CALM curriculum. Normally the seriousness involved in personal financial literacy is overlooked by a 15-16 year old, but, through Enriched Academy, my students and I have been able to have meaningful, quality conversations about investing, credit, debt and so much more. I highly recommend this program."

Owen Weimer
CALM Teacher at Grande Cache Community High School

"Enriched Academy has provided me with practical tools and resources to reset our thinking of what creating wealth and financial freedom means."

Sherry Leppan
CALM Teacher at Olds High School

"The lessons on interest, TFSAs, down payments and loans have encouraged many of my students to reflect on their goals, their money and their understanding of the financial world. Their awareness, curiosity and motivation were not only noticed by me, but also their parents, who also saw great value and the need for a financial course for students."

Stina Norman
CALM Teacher at Wheatland Crossing School

"My students appreciated the opportunities to participate in live webinars, take quizzes to check for understanding, download and record their responses in the student workbook, and go back through any of the courses at any time. I have students meeting with financial advisors, opening TFSA’s, talking in class about the stock market and what is changing in their portfolios, and making different choices about their consumer spending. These are big changes accomplished in a short amount of time and I am grateful for the opportunity to not only get to know more about what my students are planning in terms of their financial wellness but also how what they learned is translating to real life decisions for them and their families."

Kristine Woodford
Teacher at Hilltop Jr/Sr High School

"I am so grateful that I am able to use the well thought out modules to teach my High School students what I wish I myself had been taught in school! My students shared my enthusiasm as many of their questions were immediately answered upon completing a couple of courses. When they finished the whole course, many shared that they have come to realize that acquiring a basic knowledge of personal finance significantly increases their ability to make informed choices and thereby reduces the risk of economic insecurity. This program allows the students to learn at their own pace, while actively interacting with their peers.."

Mireille Haug
Teacher at Calgary French and International School

"The questions answered here have helped to further investigations of decision-making, accessibility, barriers to wealth-building, and financial independence."
