Self-Directed Economics and Personal Finance: Summer Learning

Summer is a great time to fulfill the Economics and Personal Finance course requirement.

Session 1: Monday, April 19 - Friday, June 18

We are currently receiving a very high volume of registrations for Summer programs. Wait times for online registration processing may be longer than expected.

Self-Directed Economics and Personal Finance requires students to complete work without direct teacher support. Students will access content for this course through an FCPS Canvas online environment. The course was updated in September 2020. The new course features include updated curriculum, interactive modules, and exit tickets. Students will read through 14 modules, complete 140 exit tickets, 14 module tests, and a final exam. This course does not meet face-to-face. Students may only take this course as "Pass/Fail."
