Ortus Academy offers three levels of programming. A single day program runs you through our money game for kids, NumisMatters. Numis+ takes it to the next level. Our premiere program, The Money Club, offers students a 13 session intensive experience. We aim to provide the highest level possible for your students and your budget.
We don't all have money to contribute, but we all have time in which we can give back.
Financial contributions are welcome - don't get us wrong.
But, if you're interested in working with local area students, are a college student or a local corporation seeking volunteer opportunities, consider applying.
TRUTH: YOUR KIDS WANT THIS!!!!
Young Americans aged 18 to 24 in 49 out of 50 states across the country agree that financial literacy is the study topic that would benefit their lives more than other high school courses. In a survey conducted between July 15th and 17th 2017 the National Financial Educators Council asked 5,123 young adults, "What high school-level course would benefit your life the most?"
Respondents chose money management more often than math, science, and social studies:
49.97% selected "Money Management (Personal Finance)"
18.25% selected "Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry)"
14.43% selected "Social Studies (History, Government)"
