Introductory Programs (K-5)

Junior Achievement of the upper midwest introductory programs

JA Elementary School Programs include seven sequential themes for kindergarten through fifth-grade students. Students learn the basic concepts of business and economics and how education is relevant to the workplace. The activities build on studies from each preceding grade and prepare students for secondary school and lifelong learning. Each program involves five lessons of approximately 45 minutes each.
Introductory Programs are available virtually during the 20-2021 school year.
