Triple1070 CurriculumPractical, life skills are so very needed in a high school education. But just how can you teach your young adults about finances without it being BORING? Triple 1070 offers a media rich adventure to Biblical Financial Empowerment.

With this DVD-based curriculum, follow four young adults – of various ages, backgrounds and ideas about finance – on a practical learning experience. These young people travel across the country talking with financial experts, visiting banks, learning about job planning, taxes, avoiding debt, government, investments and much more.

What is Triple 1070?

Triple 1070 is a high school level course, 13 weeks long.

Triple 1070 proverbsWhat does Triple 1070 mean?

This framework is a guideline: 10% charitable giving, 10% savings, 10% investment, 70% spending (what you have to live on). “Triple 1070 is about intentional stewardship — planning where you are going to use the money God has entrusted you with. It is not a law, but a general guideline on how to steward your resources to ensure that you take care of your own (1 Timothy 5:8) and allow God to bless others through you (Acts 20:35).”

What is included in the Triple 1070 curriculum set?

  • DVD-based curriculum – six DVDs that we watch to accompany the textbook.
  • Homeschool textbook – this resource is rich with knowledge and I can see it being a tool referenced often as my high schoolers continue into adulthood over these next, few, short years as our children work towards the steps of financial stability.
  • Homeschool daily workbook – I love how the exercises simulate a real-life situation and encourages the student to problem solve and plan.

Triple 1070 with high schoolersHow We Use it in Our Home

With two young adults in our household (rising 9th and 10th graders), my husband and I knew that finances – especially Biblical financial empowerment – would be an important part of their education. Because we have multiple ages from preschool to high school in our homeschool, we have been watching the DVD series in the evenings after the younger children are in bed. This also allows my husband to be included in the studies. Since he is in charge of our family finances, he offers examples from our our family.

Triple1070coverHere’s an example of what happened after we watched the session on Credit Cards and Interest. The speaker brought up the fact that he never buys a new car. So my daughter said, “well, how much does a new Ford Fiesta cost?” So my husband pulled up the site online and they added all the features she thought would be fun. Including the color car she wanted. Then we saw the price for that new car. We discussed how much less a car that was just a two years older would cost. We pulled up the family van and showed the children the current cost. How much we paid, etc. It’s these real life discussions prompted by Triple 1070 that I value most.

“One piece of information I could have had in high school – at least financially – it would have been the power of power of saving versus the power of debt. Saving a dollar versus spending a dollar. When you save the dollar, then you have interest on that and then compound interest. It’s an extremely powerful way to build wealth. Very few people realize that when you are in high school you can literally cinch the fact that you’ll be a millionaire by the time you retire just by socking away very few dollars every month – because of the power of compound interest and time.” basically by saving $1,000 a year ~ lesson on net worth by Dory Wiley, President of Commerce Street Capital, LLC

    I thought Financial Peace was the only curriculum available for high school homeschoolers. Love that there are so many options for us now, especially options with DVD, worksheets, and premade tests.

    This looks like an excellent curriculum choice! Love your suggestion for doing it with Dad to really look at how our family approaches these topics. I’m most looking forward to exploring the idea that we can plan ahead to reach financial goals with purpose.

      Yes, Carol! We are learning right along with our children – parents can always improve in the area of finances with the aim to be better stewards of all He has entrusted us with.

    I really like the fact that this has video episodes that correlate with the chapters. With 2 teenagers and one middle-schooler, this is a subject I know I need to teach but don’t feel qualified to do on my own. This looks like a curriculum that I can use that will help me equip my kids.

    Have you had any feedback about orders not being received for the Triple 1070?
    I place an order when I received a promotional email, and have not received the product. I have tried emailing and leaving a phone message. I have a couple weeks left to file a complaint with PayPal. I am very disappointed. My husband and I were looking forward to using it with our high school aged son.

      Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention Beth. I have contacted Triple 1070 and you should hear back from them soon! I know you and your son will enjoy the program – we surely have!
