Sweet South Carolina! Say hello to the Money Vehicle financial literacy course — one that’s perfectly aligned with state standards and can help students build a financial plan that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
As you likely know, Money Vehicle, a leading virtual financial education company dedicated to closing the financial literacy gap in the United States, has brought its financial literacy curriculum that aligns with the new educational standards recently introduced by the state of South Carolina.
This alignment follows the enactment of S.16 into law, requiring financial literacy instruction for all public school students in South Carolina. Following the lead of other states, South Carolina is set to require seniors to complete a personal finance class as a graduation requirement. Lawmakers directed this change through a provision in the 2022-23 state budget and have asked the S.C. Department of Education to develop regulations updating the graduation requirements. State Sen. Luke Rankin, R-Conway, pushed for the course, emphasizing the need for students to be financially literate when they graduate, enabling them to make informed financial decisions that can impact their entire lives. “Whether for student loans, credit cards, purchasing and or borrowing for a car or home, the cost of making poor decisions last a lifetime,” Rankin said.
The Money Vehicle course: What you should know
Money Vehicle’s financial literacy course covers the 10 most frequently asked questions about money, providing a solid foundation in financial literacy that can help young people make better decisions about money and achieve their goals.

To recap: Money Vehicle is designed for classrooms and delivers resources for educators. The course was developed by financial and educational experts—teachers and administrators among them, who have decades of experience rolling out school projects. Money Vehicle is already being used by school districts nationwide, as well as being used on college campuses and by professional sports leagues.
