Our Personal Finance Lab includes a Personal Budgeting Game, LMS-based Curriculum, and a stock market competition. The Stock Market Challenge offers players in grades 1-12 the opportunity to manage a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio by investing in stocks chosen from the USA markets: American, New York and NASDAQ exchanges. The competition teaches students about investing and encourages financial literacy through hands-on activities in the classroom.

The schools invited to participate are Athens Area, Canton Area, Northeast Bradford, Sayre Area, Towanda Area, Troy Area, and Wyalusing Area along with other private schools in the county.
