See what our students are saying about the workshops.


The Common Cents Financial Literacy Workshop was an amazing experience for me, I learned a lot of useful information that I will be able to use for the rest of my life. Mr. Gannon is a great teacher, with tons of knowledge in the financial field, and is able to break down topics that are hard to comprehend and explain them in a way where I can totally understand it. If you are looking to pursue a career in finance or just want to expand your knowledge I highly recommend taking these classes!

Great program!! My son Peter attended last summer and really enjoyed it. He was happy to have the opportunity to be exposed to the financial/business world. He especially liked being on the trading floor.

Common Cents is a great program, especially for someone who has interest in the financial world. Taking this class was a huge factor in me knowing what I want to study in the future and also giving me a deeper understanding of the financial world past the dollar sign. Attending this class was a great decision that will do nothing but help me in the near future. Thank you for providing an intriguing experience.

As a parent who recognizes the importance of financial literacy I wanted to make sure my children were well prepared for the economic challenges life will present. I am extremely grateful to Mr. Gannon and the Common Cents Program for educating my daughter and exposing her to our financial systems. We look forward to our youngest son attending the program this coming school year!
