Since 1982, the Academy of Finance, a member of the National Academy Foundation (NAF), has addressed the needs of the financial services industry by providing public high school students with the knowledge and skills required for success.
Students in the Academy take a finance oriented career theme within the School of Business. Partnerships with employers, the community, and local colleges bring together outside resources to create unparalleled opportunities for education and work experience in the world of finance.
Students in the Academy gain the opportunity to visit local businesses for job shadows, internships, meetings and other events.
Upon graduation, Academy students are eligible to receive up to 19.5 credits at San Diego City College, for course completed in the program with a grade of "B" or better.
