Reality U

CIS of Georgia in Marietta/Cobb County provides an impactful 75-minute Financial Literacy program for 8-10th graders. Reality U takes a student’s current GPA and propels them to their 26-year old life. Students are given their career and earning potential based upon their GPA and are then left to navigate Childcare, Housing, Transportation, Insurance, Shopping and the many other issues we face as adults. Students are given different life situations like married, divorced, bad credit scores or even lots of children. This is a fun and impactful program providing students with a realistic “ah-ha” moment that academic achievement yields fiscal health and wealth.
