San Marcos Entrepreneurship Academy Financial Literacy Project

This Tuesday, October 18, members of the 2018 class of the San Marcos Entrepreneurship Academy will set out to educate over 400 fellow Royals on an assortment of topics ranging from “What to Know About Student Loans”, “Women in Finance”, “First Impression”, “Fraud Alert”, “Investment Principles”, “Entrepreneurship Skills”, and “The Benefits and Dangers of Credit Cards”. Each of the presentations cover a variety of topics that contain necessary information that students should know before moving on to a college or university. In the Junior finance class taught by Sergio Villa, President of Alliance Wealth Strategies, and Jamie Devries, Economics Teacher and President of Kids Helping Kids, the students have taken the past few weeks to research and develop their unique presentation so that they best communicate what all students need to know about handling their finances. Their goal: to educate and inform as many of their fellow students and spread awareness for the Entrepreneurship Academy.
The San Marcos High School Entrepreneurship Academy is a dynamic three-year program that enhances the core curriculum through the personalized study of business, marketing, economics and finance. The Academy provides students with the knowledge, skills, and experience to springboard their own entrepreneurial visions into action through rigorous coursework, relevant experience in local business community partnerships, and student run business ventures. Upon completion of the Academy, students have the foundation to effectively create their own business and/or successfully pursue a business related college degree.
