Within its walls, young minds will engage in our proven lessons that promote financial capability, work and career readiness, and the spirit of entrepreneurship.

Through these immersive programs, students will have the unique opportunity to interact with local businesses, discover the advantages of being consumers, and explore the wealth of opportunities that await them within their own community.

Beyond the classroom, the Perdue Henson Junior Achievement Center will be a valuable community resource. On days when students are not present, businesses and organizations will have the opportunity to utilize the facility for meetings and events.
