Audio: Financial Literacy Programs at Saint Andrew Catholic School

Mr. Robert Sikora Saint Andrew Catholic School PAAt Saint Andrew Catholic School, parents, teachers and community partners come together to offer students several ways to start thinking about their economic futures. The school hosts an on-campus bank, invites parents in to teach financial and career planning classes, and teachers run a stock market club to introduce students to investing. Principal Robert Sikora explains that “the goal is to teach the value of a dollar and to learn to save.” More than that, though, the programs offer a chance for the whole school community to contribute to students’ futures. “As a principal,” Sikora says, “[people tell you], ‘this is awesome…how did you create this?’ And a lot of it I didn’t create. It was our community that created it together.”
