Welcome to the Edward C. Allred Center for Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship. This center, in the La Sierra University School of Business exists to promote free market economics through the education of students, with a focus on Seventh-day Adventist high schools.
Established in 2010, the center provides high school students with interactive, online materials that teach them the principles and practices of financial literacy and personal finance. It also sponsors a lecture series on free market economics at Adventist high schools. In the summer, the center offers a boot camp on entrepreneurship for selected high school students and a workshop on free market economics for high school instructors on the university campus. It also conducts annual award programs for high school students who submit essays on free market economics and for high school economics instructors who bring innovation and creativity to the teaching of free market economics.
