Money Path is a comprehensive and unparalleled web-based software tool, specifically for high school students, that uniquely links academic and career planning with financial planning. Available at the crucial time when students are making decisions about adult life, Money Path sets them on a course to reach their lifelong career and financial goals.
Using Money Path, students walk through a step-by-step simulation of life after graduation. They identify a path: college, an apprenticeship, military service, or direct entry into the workforce. Then, using Money Path’s up-to-date data on career starting salaries and post-secondary education costs, students develop a real-life budget, set savings goals, and compare different paths side by side to envision the long-term impact of their decisions. This allows students to connect the dots between career path and pay, college expenses and student loan debt, managing a budget, and establishing a timeline for achieving important financial goals like purchasing a car or home and saving for retirement.
Money Path is the most complete, integrated, and easy-to-use virtual solution for educators to support high school students in moving forward confidently towards a financially stable future for themselves and their communities.
