Economic Literacy at Collegiate

Collegiate School’s promise is to nurture and equip our students as scholars, citizens and leaders. The Institute for Responsible Citizenship brings together eight vital areas – known as pillars – of school life under one umbrella. The eight pillars are: Global Engagement, Inclusion, Economic Literacy, Entrepreneurship, Sustainability, Ethics, Civic Engagement and Service Learning.

Economic Literacy programs at Collegiate School provide students with foundations in both economics education and financial literacy. Economics education is the study of how markets work and how individuals make choices to manage resources, and financial literacy is the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage monetary resources effectively.
