Biztown COLORIn partnership with the Fayette County Public Schools, Junior Achievement of the Bluegrass will transform approximatly 13,000 square feet of Linlee Elementary School into an exciting, state of the art facility where students from throughout central Kentucky will come to experience a living lesson in economics, community and financial literacy.

“Just think about how amazing it will be when we have a JA Biztown/JA Finance Park right here in Fayette County to enhance the work already happening in the classroom. The new facility will not replace JA’s classroom components already in place; it will only add more opportunities for students to connect what they learn in school with what they need to succeed as adults,” Fayette County School District Superintendent Manny Caulk said.
