Inspiring Young Minds Through Junior Achievement

Junior Achievement is alive and well at St. Jude of the Lake Catholic School in Mahtomedi.

Recently our 2nd graders had the opportunity to learn about Jobs in the Community. Mr. Axelson, one of our parents, took time from his busy day to educate the children job possibilities in our community over the past 6 weeks.

JA can give students a head start in life

Junior Achievement helps students understand the importance of entrepreneurship, managing money, and preparing for college or a career. JA gives students an advantage by providing real world opportunities and skills not taught in schools.

JA helps you answer important life questions. What are you going to be when you grow up? How much education will you need to pull it off? Where are you going to live? What are you going to drive? How much will all of it cost you? What about your credit?

Knowing how to answer these questions now will prove to be valuable over a lifetime.
