Students at Philo-Hill Magnet Academy choose a career and are given a corresponding salary. With that salary, they must create a monthly budget and make choices about transportation, living accommodations, childcare, phone and cable bills, etc.
From this experience, students receive hands on training in financial literacy to provide them with the knowledge to effectively manage a budget in the real world.
