North Tonawanda's Academy of Business and Finance
This three-year program offers students the opportunity to take an enhanced curriculum that provides practical business and financial knowledge, challenging coursework and on-the-job experiences. The Academy is a "school within a school" where graduating students would be eligible for an entry-level financial position or be equipped to successfully complete a university or college degree program.
The advantage of this program is three-fold: knowledge, experience and college credit.
Knowledge: Academy students gain a solid financial education, proficiency using cutting-edge software, an understanding of sound business practices and corporate workplace etiquette standards.
Experience: Academy students are required to take part in a paid internship to build practical on-the-job experiences in the financial industry.
College Credit: Several of the courses in the academy program are available for college credit with a small fee. The ability to offer these programs helps to defray the cost of college. Also, there are several colleges that work with NAF to give college credit JUST for completing the academy program! Follow this link to find out more information.
This combination of knowledge, experience and the ability to earn college credit while still in high school provides Academy graduates a competitive advantage over most other high school graduates.
