Personal Financial Literacy at Bishop Kelley

For all the news about the dysfunctional Oklahoma education system, a decision made a few years ago, I believe, will pay off in the long run. For the last several years, the State of Oklahoma has required a course in personal financial literacy in order to graduate. Here at Bishop Kelley, we’ve embraced it hoping to ensure not only our students spiritual and educational futures be solid, but also their financial futures.

Reports abound of the state of American family finances and the news is not good. The main responsibility for teaching children about finances falls to parents. It’s our hope that the personal financial literacy curriculum we offer will supplement and enhance what parents are already teaching their children.

We offer the course during the school year and as an online summer offering.  I think it will pay off in the long run and give our students a solid foundation on which to build a secure financial future.

God bless you.

Fr. O’Brien
