Mission Statement

To preserve the American Dream by providing outcome driven, blended online, 1 year, Texas Education Agency approved high school CTE/Math credit course on financial education, career discovery, postsecondary education and reality based math. The course, Real Life Financial Math, engages the community to help students gain skills and knowledge to seek challenging goals and opportunities for the future.

Description

Think about the one course you wished you had in high school. The odds are good that it would have provided you real world financial information - how to find a job, pay for college, file taxes, budget, manage debt, set goals and save for your future.

Since 2006, the leaders of FMA have engaged 1,200 Houston area teens in a program with award winning outcomes. Starting in 2012, they developed an outcome based blended online course to prepare students for the future. The course, Real Life Financial Math, will be available in Texas high schools starting September 2017, if the public asks for it. We need community engagement to bring this course to your district.

Your responsibility could be simple - call the superintendent of your local school district and ask if the district will offer Real Life Financial Math, the only TEA approved financial math course, that also comes with 35% more CTE funding. If they need more info, we will provide it.
