Junior Achievement Partnership

Elizabethtown Area School District partners with Junior Achievement of Central Pennsylvania to provide programs to give young students an understanding of business and economics. Junior Achievement programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. A benefit for our students through this partnership is every high school student receives a prestigious PA Department-of-Education-recognized certification for completing Junior Achievement's BizTown, YES!, and STEM Summit programs while students are in our District. All three programs focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education and helped students discover the connection between future careers and academic education. 

JA BizTown

JA BizTown takes place in fifth grade and is an interactive model town that allows students to examine the connection between academics and the world beyond the classroom walls.


The YES! curriculum is offered at the middle school to help students appreciate the importance financial and career decisions play in their lives as young adults.   

STEM Summit

The STEM Summit is offered at the high school and is designed to spark an interest in and inspire students to explore careers in a STEM-related field by connecting classroom learning with fun, high-energy STEM activities.
