The Stock Market Game Academy

The Stock Market Game is a highly effective tool for teaching essential skills through a virtual simulation hosted by the SIFMA Foundation. The game has been played across the nation for over twenty years. While playing a "game," students practice core subjects like math, reading, writing, and many other life skills and can earn prizes while competing against other students online. 

The Stock Market Game Academy provides training, lessons, and online accounts necessary to play the game. 

ANY and ALL students in grades 4-12 are welcome to play. This includes public school, charter, private, after-school, or home-school students. 

The Stock Market Game Academy Includes:

  • An online SIFMA Stock Market Game account where students place fake virtual trades

  • The Game tracks investment portfolios in real time; all student data is hidden

  • Weekly live 30-minute teaching sessions to build skills and ask questions 

  • Games are played in blocks of 3 months; start or cancel play anytime

  • Teaching pre-game, during-game, and post-game via webinar

  • Teaching documents for students

  • Prizes awarded 


  • The Stock Market Game is played on a platform hosted by the SIFMA foundation in teams of two over a 10-week period.

  • Students are provided accounts to an online dashboard where they choose which stocks to invest in using $100,000 of virtual "money".

  • The students can change their investments at any time. The platform tracks their portfolio in real-time, providing an engaging experience. 

  • The Stock Market Game Academy was developed by Director Hardy, who has taught how to play the game for over ten years.

  • The teams coached won the Stock Market Game in Utah 15 plus times.

  • Students choose a time once a week to receive coaching via live webinars with other student game players. 

The game is now one of the most dynamic and relevant student training programs available, tailored for grade levels 4-12.
