As a mom who homeschooled my children through high school, I am frequently asked if I felt that homeschooling was the best option. Typically, as I continue dialoguing with the questioner, the real question they are asking is, "What classes did you teach them?" My answer is always the same; I sought to prepare them for their unique futures. Many feel this is a non-answer, but the reality is that all of our children will have a different path that they are called to follow. However, there was one course that both of my children were required to complete before graduation and that was a Dave Ramsey Personal Finance Course. I am thrilled that Rainbow Resource Center is now carrying this outstanding course for homeschooled teens.

Recently revised, this course goes above and beyond my greatest expectations! Combining the high energy that Dave Ramsey is well known for with the practical experiences of his team, this DVD-driven curriculum will equip your young people for financial success. After laying the personal finance foundation with units on saving and budgeting, this comprehensive course explores credit and debt, money myths, and post-high school opportunities including how to pay for higher education. Consumer awareness follows, which takes a hard look at common marketing tactics, buyer's remorse, and developing power over purchases. Bargain shopping, investing, retiring, insurance, money and relationships, careers and taxes, and giving conclude this practical, well-developed course. The course meets state benchmarks and standards if you are in a state that requires a personal finance course. Information is available at www.daveramsey.com/school/foundations-standards.

As a parent who has used the two previous editions of this course, I was thrilled to see that it now includes instruction on the valuable skill of balancing your checking account, the importance of student budgeting, the role of money in interpersonal relationships, career planning, resumes, interview basics, a summary of income and taxes, and the importance of giving your time, money, and talents to help others.

The Homeschool Kit includes one DVD set and one student workbook. The DVD set contains five instructional DVDs along with a 160-page digital Teacher's Guide on CD-ROM. The PDF teacher's guide includes case studies, various activity ideas, and tests. Most of the activities provided are tailored for individual students. The teaching helps and information provided is designed to be flexible, giving you the ability to select the options that will best meet your educational goals. The 284-page consumable workbook includes lecture outlines, motivating quotes and scripture references, tips for success, brief topical articles, key terms, quizzes, graphic organizers, and chapter reviews. The reviews contain matching, multiple choice, illustration boxes and short-answer questions. Access to online learning adds even more content to this program and provides useful finance tools, chapter activities/quizzes, and diverse articles of interest to high school students. Although the course is designed for individual homeschool use, permission is granted for homeschool groups/co-ops to use the program. Each student will need their own workbook.

This course prepares young people for their future regardless of the career path they follow. In my family, this course was "required," not only for graduation but also before they were allowed to have checking accounts and debit cards. Your young people will thank you for this course - if not today, then in the future! ~ Deanne

I want my kids to learn about how to handle money before they get into the working world. Dave Ramsey is straight forward and easy to listen to so hopefully the lessons will stick with them. others I have listened to are monotone and boring.

We will be using this for each child prior to graduation as it does not seem that there is anything else on the market that prepares them for real living.
Jacquelene P on Jul 24, 2018
I'm so glad you carry this Personal Finance curriculum by Dave Ramsey. We were looking for a math credit for my non-mathy senior and wanted a curriculum that would teach her an appropriate view of handling money. We heard from friends that this was a consumer ed class and much more. I think it will be perfect.

Stephanie B on Aug 8, 2019
Is this a full years worth of work or a half year? Would this be a half or full credit for high school transcript? Thanks!
Andrea on Apr 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello. I was told that this particular course would only be worth a half credit ELECTIVE. This course does not count as the as the ECONOMICS credit required by many states for a student to graduate. RR can help with finding the correct course to fulfill any state requirement.

That being said, I am glad my son took THIS course & I will have my other children take it as well. Even if it only counts as an elective, this course truly opened my son’s eyes to personal finance, responsibility, risk, & debt. This course should actually be the one required by ALL students to graduate! In fact, my son recommends it for every adult, as well.

If you have further questions about which Economics courses for your student to take, I strongly suggest speaking to RR staff in order to guide you in the right direction.
What is the difference between the 2008 and 2014 editions? I have the 2008, but am wondering if there is enough value added to purchase the 2014.
A shopper on Mar 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: One parent who has used the two previous editions of this course noted that it now includes instruction on the valuable skill of balancing your checking account, the importance of student budgeting, the role of money in interpersonal relationships, career planning, resumes, interview basics, a summary of income and taxes, and the importance of giving your time, money, and talents to help others.
What is the copyright date of this edition? I have the DVDs from what might be a previous edition (2008)and wondered if the current student book will work with my DVDs. Does anyone have experience with this?
Karen A on Jul 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My DVDs and workbook are both copyright 2014, so I'm not sure if your DVDs from 2008 can be used with the current workbook. Sorry I can't help.
What grade/age would you recommend a high school student take the course? Would you do it right away (gr. 9) or leave it until the senior years? Thanks in advance!
A shopper on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Our family has used it with our co-op for middle school agrees with no trouble. The mom who runs it does the money game for their income and it works fine.
Can you use just the book, or is it a must to have the DVDs also?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The course is taught from the DVDs and it cannot be done without them. The speakers are very engaging and the course is well worth the money. I highly recommend it.
How many hours of work is this? Could it be considered a semester of high school math?
A shopper on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The syllabus that comes with the course suggests spending about 50 minutes a day on each assignment. However, some days didn't require nearly that amount of time, and other days more time was required, particularly if your student does the research and essay projects.

No, you could not count this as a semester of high school math.

I would highly recommend this course for all high school students as it will provide them with a wealth of practical knowledge. If your child actually applies the principles that he learns in this course to his daily living, he will most assuredly build a firm financial foundation that will benefit him for the rest of his life.
Does this curriculum contain any sectarian content?
User on May 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. There are Biblical references, but not interpretation or doctrinal teaching. The course covers primarily financial topics. There is a list of verses on the topic of money found on the teacher CD.
does this curriculum have sectarian content?
A shopper on May 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think that any of the lessons were overtly "Christian" in their speech, but I am a Christian so I was coming at it from that worldview. I watched most of them with my kids and they talk about things such as "giving to charity" etc. but kind of in a vague way. It was a great course for my high schoolers and I think would be even more beneficial for a young college student. We really liked it.

Lots of prep work for teacher
I was hoping this would be more of an independent program for my son, but there is quite a bit of prep work on the teacher's part - printing out tests and extra activity papers. Answers for the student workbook are also included on the teacher disc - so you either need to print those out or pull it up each time you check the workbook and tests. I guess there is a one year program that they can do online which would be an independent study, but I'd rather put the money into something that we can re-use part of or re-sell when finished. The program seems really good and so far my son is enjoying it.
