High School Programs :: JA Economics®
Junior Achievement gratefully acknowledges MetLife Foundation for its dedication to the development and implementation of JA Economics.
JA Economics reinforces concepts of micro- and macro- economics by having students explore the basic characteristics of the U.S. economic system, and how economic principles influence business decisions. It also introduces students to career opportunities, consumer issues, and helps reinforce important academic and leadership skills, including: research and data analysis, problem-solving and critical thinking.
See the Scope and Sequence for a complete listing of program concepts and skills.

A study guide, like the one pictured here, is found in each JA Economics program kit.
