The Cudahy High School Business Education Department is pleased to announce that more than 32 percent of all CHS students who participated in the United States Treasury Department’s National Financial Capability Challenge finished in the top 20 percent of all students nationwide. The National Financial Capability Challenge is a test designed to assess and recognize the financial knowledge of high school students. It consists of an online standardized test that allows students nationwide to demonstrate their understanding of personal finance topics such as budgeting, investing, saving, and general banking principles.
More than 84,000 students across the United States participated in this year’s challenge. A total of 65 students in Mr. Kevin Jones’s Personal Finance course participated. Of those 65 students, 32.3 percent, or 21 students, scored in the top 20th percentile. Congratulations to the following award-winning students who will be receiving a certificate for their performance from the United States Treasury and the Department of Education:

“In addition to these 21 students, we had many students who were just one to three correct answers away from scoring in the top 20th percentile,” said Jones. “Our students, in general, outperformed other students across the nation who took the test.”
Congratulations to all of the students who participated!
