Financial Literacy for Youth
Financial Literacy for Youth (FLY) Academy is a mission centric organization dedicated to building financial literacy in our tweens and teens from middle through high school. We firmly believe similar to physical health, financial health is only obtained through sound financial habits that are best developed in your youth.
Our unique curriculum developed by multi-disciplinary experts offers active learning through gamification (physical & virtual tools), workshops & case-study analyses etc to thoroughly engage students, building lifelong curiosity & discipline in financial concepts.
Our Promise: As parents & guardians, you WILL notice your child's approach towards money & financial interest evolve within the 1st month!
Come join our movement to provide the most-critical education your child deserves.

Our philosophy is rooted in the beliefs that
Healthy financial habits must be developed early in life and nurtured to pursue an active interest in your financial well-being.
Active Learning (as opposed to passive-listening) utilizing interactive tools, work-shops etc engages students in ways that build financial curiosity, discipline & fiscal responsibility.
We apply this through 3 tiers of financial development:
Curiosity development through collective learning of foundational concepts and terminologies around the 5 pillars of financial literacy
Application oriented through gamification & interactive tools to understand financial management vehicles:
Stocks/Equity, ETF, Bonds etc)
Capital & successful entrepreneurship
Stock market clubs, simulated trading platforms
Focus on discipline & habit-forming through ongoing interest in current events, economic analyses (macro, global, local). Understanding risk tolerance, trade-offs and application to personal financial life events like:
College & tuition (applying a financial lens towards your choices for college education),
First job (trade-offs, saving - spending - investing)
First 'big' purchase
