After being briefed on the Reality Fair program in the school’s small theater, students made life choices, filled out their budget worksheets, spun the Wheel of Reality, and finally sat down with a financial counselor to go over the experience.

The Fair received media attention from SNJ Today and the Press of Atlantic City.
