"EverFi opened the students minds to the financial responsibility that is required to be successful."
- Teacher (12 years teaching, 2 years using EverFi, Alabama)
"EverFi teaches and explains things in depth. I like that you can work and learn at your own pace. I can apply what I've learned by using this knowledge in the future, when the time comes to buy my own home, my own car, and pay for bills when I'm an adult."
-Student, Thaprtown High School
"In my twenty years of teaching, I have never had a more useful tool in my classroom than EverFi lessons."
- Teacher (20 years teaching, 5 years using EverFi, Alabama)
"I liked how EverFi helps us learn more about how to handle our money. Now I will know what to do when it comes time to open an account and save for college. I know there are different ways to save now."
-Student, Russellville High School
