JA Biztown

Junior Achievement has long been leading schools in educating young children about business and personal finanace. Biztown is an extension of that learning by giving St. Louis area students a chance to experience running a business, keeping track of their earnings and spending within a small community. They also get o see how a town works. This experiential learning helps them prepare to go into the real world.

There’s a lot more to education than blackboards and textbooks. Behind the Minds takes you behind the school doors to highlight educational initiatives within St. Louis city and county K-12 schools. Watch for teachers, staff, administrators, and students who will blow your mind with innovative ideas and programs.
