Our Mission

To simplify personal finance into byte-sized content to meet each person where they are.

We believe that for financial literacy to be effective, it should be ongoing, personalized, interactive, and engaging.

We created a middle and high school Learning Management System (LMS) that uses worksheets, articles, videos, and case studies to teach personal finance. Our curriculum follows every benchmark for each standard from the Council for Economic Education. What’s more, we offer pre- and post-assessments, so you have data to track your students’ progress.

Each lesson is reviewed by a certified financial education instructor and a Ph.D. in financial literacy. We want to ensure that every topic is not only easy to understand, but also accurately conveys the principles of financial wellness with an energetic, positive, engaging tone.

If you would like a demo of our LMS, please click the 'Get a Demo' request button! You can also click here for a one-page description of the LMS and here for its technical specifications.

We want to be part of the solution.

In partnership,
The CentSai Team

Our Mission

The fact is...

The fact is

We learn to do our laundry before we are taught how to handle our money. Yes. having clean clothes is essential, but the worst that might happen if you mix your whites and your colors is tie-dyed underwear and socks.

The result of not knowing how to manage your money?
Anxiety, debt, and decisions that have a long-lasting impact on your credit score — and your physical and mental health.

Our Mission
Our Mission

With only 21 of the 50 states requiring high school students to complete a course in financial education, according to the Council for Economic Education, it’s no surprise that financial illiteracy is an epidemic in our country.

A few of us might learn the financial basics from our caregivers or friends, but the vast majority of us have no idea how personal finance works when we start out in the “real world.”

But it doesn’t have to be this way.
