Press Release
Free K-12 Financial Education Courses Through April 30

Lincoln, Neb. (March 17, 2020) – During this time of school closures, many K-12 students and families find themselves in an unprecedented situation of having to seek out online educational resources to fill the learning gap. We here at Inceptia understand this challenge and are proud to offer our free financial education courses to all K-12 students now through April 30.

 

Financial Avenue offers ten individual courses that cover everything from saving and budgeting, to planning for college and a career, to spending wisely and tackling debt.

 

“There really is something for everyone within Financial Avenue,” says Carissa Uhlman, vice president of student success at Inceptia. “We designed the courses to speak specifically to teens without talking down to them, with a mixture of videos, activities, and quizzes to keep them engaged. For students who are getting ready to make major financial decisions in the very near future, the time to prepare is now. That’s what Financial Avenue is all about.”

 

As part of its non-profit philanthropic mission, Inceptia has always offered Financial Avenue free to K-12 educators and administrators. It is our firm belief that making it available to the public at this time provides a unique opportunity for all students to focus in-depth on a topic that will provide a solid foundation for future financial wellness.

 

To access the free courses, students may go to https://fa.financialavenue.org/sign-up/ and use Access Code “longspringbreak” to create a user account and get started. Additional information on the program is available with this guide and with our Student Experience video.

 

We are happy to answer any questions at talktous@inceptia.org. From the Inceptia family to yours, we hope for wellness for all, both physical and financial.
