Seton Catholic School has partnered with Junior Achievement to provide a economic literacy program to our youth. Junior Achievement programs begin at the elementary school level. Seton Catholic School participates in the following Junior Achievement program, JA BizTown. The program teaches students how they can impact the world around them as individuals, workers, and consumers. JA prepares students for future economic and work-force issues they will face.
Elementary school students are not old enough to drive, work, vote, or be the boss. But that doesn't stop them from operating banks, managing restaurants, writing checks, and voting for mayor at JA BizTown! The program combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to this fully-interactive simulated town facility. The program helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world.
Through daily lessons, hands-on activities, and active participation in this simulated community designed to support differentiated learning styles, students develop a strong understanding of the relationship between what they learn in school and their successful participation in a worldwide economy.
We encourage parent and community leaders to become involved with Junior Achievement.
