NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Carter CPA, a Tax and Accounting firm with offices in New York and New Jersey, is pleased to announce its involvement as a PENCIL Partner for a second consecutive school year.  PENCIL's models of school-business collaboration create and support individual Partnerships that align school need with business expertise, and improve school and student performance.

Carter CPA LLC.

After a successful year working with college-bound students at Eximius College Preparatory Academy in the Bronx, a member of College for Every Student (CFES), PENCIL Partner Jodi Carter, CPA, AEP® is piloting a new program with Eximius.  With PENCIL's help, this year, Carter rolled out her self-created Financial Literacy and Behavioral Finance interactive game called "Decades."  The game provides students with an opportunity to experience real-life financial decision-making related to topics such as career choices, renting versus buying, opportunity costs, compound interest, and the financial impact of marriage and divorce.  Each month, the game takes twists as students are provided with new information or an unexpected change in the fact pattern. 

Carter has always had a passion for teaching accounting and finance.  She often advises her millennial generation clients on key topics such as lifestyle planning, career aspirations and home ownership. She is thrilled to have an opportunity to bring similar guidance to high school students.

"The Eximius students love 'Decades,'" said Gayle Villani, PENCIL's Vice President of Programs. "The core financial skills that Jodi teaches these students will help them understand how they can find and finance a college that's right for them. Jodi's efforts directly align with the focus of our College and Career work, which provides students  insights into new careers, industries, and opportunities; the paths that they may take to reach those goals; and the skills and qualities they must master and rely on in school, college, and the workplace in order to be successful."
