Financial Peace University (FPU) is Dave Ramsey's life-changing program on personal finance. Imagine if you could retire early, pay for a car in cash and live debt free! It's definitely possible and through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. It doesn’t matter if you’re up to your eyeballs in debt or you’re completely debt free, this plan will show you how to manage and communicate about money, get rid of debt, spend and save wisely, and much more!  Dave's class will teach you to take control of your money, invest for the future, and give like never before.

Classes meet for an hour and a half each week for 9 weeks; the average family pays off $5300 in debt and saves $2700 in the first 91 days!

Proven Success

Chaco has helped 86 families pay-off $513,504.34 non-mortgage debt during the class!

  •  "We didn't accumulate our debt overnight and we knew we couldn't erase it overnight either. By the end of the class we had eliminated nearly $5,000.00 in debt and we continue to gain more financial freedom with each passing week."
  • “We used to spend money without really thinking of our long term goals...we would just think "Oh, it will work out somehow!"But, now we have a plan in place, with concrete numbers to back it up. "
  • "Because of this class, I have paid off all debt except for my home and student loans. In total I was able to pay off over $15,000 in 9 short months by living the motto "Live like no one else, so later you CAN live like no one else." It was tough at times, but I was not willing to give up. I don't lie awake at night anymore worrying about finances."
  • “The cash flow system of allocating dollars to future paychecks is ingenious. You get to tell your money where to go, rather than wondering every month where your money went!"
