Imagine playing a human version of The Game of Life, and there you have The School of Hard Knocks!

The School of Hard Knocks is a volunteer event hosted annually by the WLC. Eighth graders of Philo Hill learn difficult lessons about the “real world.”

Students are assigned a job along with a salary. From there, they are faced with choices. Choices around their living situation, transportation, insurances, phone and cable bills, which bank to use, and lots more.
