St. Bernard Prep partners with Peoples Bank of Alabama

St. Bernard Prep has been selected as one of 50 high schools to add  the  financial literacy education program , EverFi  to the economics curriculum at the school.  Peoples Bank of Alabama has underwritten the cost of EverFi – Financial Literacy platform which  provides an interactive, web-based financial management program to St. Bernard Prep at no cost to the school.

EverFi is an award-winning, web-based course that uses video, animations, 3-D gaming, avatars and social networking to bring financial concepts to life for today’s digital generation.  The course curriculum aligns with both state and national financial literacy standards and Common Core State Math Standards.

Instructor, Bill Nuss said he looks forward to his class being part of Teen Moola U and  involved with the EverFi curriculum,  where students will spend at least 8 hours covering:  savings, banking, credit cards and interest rates; credit score, Financing higher education; renting vs. owning; taxes and insurance; consumer fraud; and investing.  

“Many times students lack an understanding of personal finances and look to their parents for that information.  With this program our goal is to educate them on financial topics associated with day to day living,”Nuss said.

The ten-module course will work alongside the existing curriculum.  Each student will register and have their own self-paced interactive experience tailored to their needs. 

Surveys and assessments provide visibility into student knowledge gains and changes attitudes and behaviors.  Nuss will then be able to track student progress and differentiate instruction based on student outcomes. 
Peoples Bank of Alabama is committed to promoting financial literacy that teaches adults to better understand money management principles.  MOOLA U BASICS is an interactive financial education class that one can take anytime, anywhere –online and at their own pace at
