Financial Literacy Program

The LMU College of Business Administration is proud to partner with FoolProof on a one-of-a-kind High School Financial Literacy Program this summer. LMU students mentor high school students via a highly interactive online curriculum over the course of seven weeks.


The LMU Fred Kiesner Center for Entrepreneurship began teaching financial literacy in the summer of 2015. Since then, the demand has grown so much that we had to find a way to scale the program to provide as many high school students the opportunity to learn the important life skill of financial literacy. We are excited to partner with FoolProof to reach more high school students.

Program Structure

  • Over the course of seven weeks (July 13 - August 17, 2021), students will complete seven modules
  • Students can expect to commit 2-4 hours per week.
  • Points will be given to teams and individuals for completion and understanding of the materials.
  • Team mentors (LMU students) will check in with each student and help with the modules.


"I think this is a curriculum that should be taught to all teens. The world would be a different place if young people started out with financial literacy."

"I really enjoyed the experience, and I learned a lot about managing and saving money, credit, and investing. The skills and knowledge I obtained during this class will undoubtedly serve me well both now and in the future, and I will definitely put them into practice."

"This was such a valuable life skill class that they can put into action as they grow into their adult independence."
