Fall and Spring Semester Programs
The Stock Market Game™ is an online education program used to help teach math, social studies, business, economics, and language skills while focusing on the importance of long-term saving and investment. Students in grades 4-12 participate in teams and manage a simulated investment portfolio.  Each semester, student teams compare the performance of their portfolios with other teams in Virginia and their region.  The Spring Semester is a 15-week program allowing students to continue to manage their portfolios beyond the competition period.

 

Fee:  $10 per team (up to 4 students per team): $25 for a single team
