Free Real Estate Workshop for Juniors and Seniors



Last week, a group of juniors and seniors at Chaparral heard from guest speakers from the Arizona School of Real Estate & Business during a classroom period. Students were asked a series of questions regarding real estate and basic life skills such as what is a mortgage and a security deposit. The responses were eye opening for many of the students.


The Arizona School of Real Estate & Business is offering a 3-day workshop series designed to arm juniors and seniors with life knowledge as it relates to real estate to prepare for life after graduation. Topics covered will be rental leases and rights as a tentant, how to budget now to rent or afford to purchase a home, how to sell and buy a home and much more.


Students who complete the workshop series will also earn a designation that can be used on college applications and resumes to make students stand out. This is FREE for Chaparral students –  parents are also welcome to attend with their child/(ren).
