On behalf of Phyllis Frankfort Perillo, President and CEO, and all of us at w!se, it gives me great pleasure to announce the Blue Star Schools for the 2013-2014 academic year. Congratulations! A school, testing ten or more students, must have achieved a 75% passing rate on our Financial Literacy Certification Test and have EITHER a majority of students on a given grade level take the Test OR have the students who took it achieve an average score of 80% or higher. 


We are truly proud of your students’ accomplishment. We are equally proud of you and your teachers who helped them become Certified Financially Literate™. Because of your dedicated and tireless commitment, you have given them vital knowledge about their personal finances. You have also provided them with the tools they need to become financially capable young adults.


Once again, congratulations to all of this years Blue Star schools for an outstanding achievement and sincere thanks for your tremendous hard work in helping to improve the financial literacy of our nation’s young people.
