Turn the classroom into an economy

QuarterSprout takes a classroom economy and elevates it into a full economy, allowing students to learn modern financial skills and economics through a real experience.


Students are practicing skills that will help them in our modern financial system. The decisions they make have a real effect on their lives, which engages their emotions in the learning process.


Students are excited to earn money and interact in this mini economy. When implemented, it can increase student engagement and act as a behavioral management tool.


Students will learn about the importance of soft skills such as doing what you promised to do, being on time, communication, and showing up for a job, among many others.

"Kids make corporations and monopolize the class economy in short order." - Ray, 8th Grade Teacher
