Ellie's Credit Score (CTE)


Students will be able to apply basic credit score knowledge and understand how credit-related activities affect a credit score. Help Ellie understand how to improve a credit score and apply general credit management tips.


Taking care of your financial health is the basis of Ellie's journey during this lesson, which is a series of 4 lessons on Personal Financial Health and working towards being a young business leader and owner.

This lesson begins with targeting your credit score and how credit health affects all of your financial decisions and borrowing power.

"I really want to make it in life, but I don't know how!" Success is something that is inherently built in us from the moment we are educated, to the moment we land that first job, as something to strive for. The whole process is meant to move you forward in life, building yourself a better future. But how do you start planning such a feat?"
