What’s the BUZZ about BizTown!Monmouth County Private School


By, Linda Vacca






Financial Literacy- Oak Hill Academy has got that covered! Students


in grades 5th and 6th attended a hands-on workshop at Junior


Achievement BizTown in Edison, NJ. This was a culminating activity


after many months of preparation learning all about Finance. From


balancing checkbooks, to applying for jobs at their facility, to writing


ads for the newspaper and radio station, to pricing items, tracking


inventory, and acquiring loans for their businesses. Students at Oak


Hill Academy, the best of New Jersey independent schools puts “real


life” skills to work. Students learn all about the important role a CEO


and a CFO have in operating a business and assume these roles while


at BizTown. All students receive a direct deposit paycheck and then


another one later, and spend their hard earned money.


Students have learned the importance of saving and also making

monetary donations to a worthy organization, along with keeping


track of their expenses. The Best Monmouth county private school,


Oak Hill Academy provides opportunities like BizTown for our


students to be able to assume roles in a simulated environment in the


business world. Some students worked at a fast food restaurant,


others created digital designs, or operated banks, while others helped


in the medical field. We even had a City Hall and a mayor who


oversaw all the businesses. Working together while learning together


is why Oak Hill Academy is the Best Monmouth county private school!
