Academy of Financial Technology

What is the Academy of Financial Technology?



Students in the Academy of Financial Technology have the opportunity to prepare for careers in finance and technology in a career-focused curriculum with focus areas in financial technology, data analytics and entrepreneurship.

Students are offered coursework that introduces them to the field and provides opportunities for internships and career exposure. 

Academy programming allows students to take traditional high school courses with the addition of approximately one class per semester in the chosen career pathway. Students in our academy programs are still eligible for Advanced Placement (AP) and Career and College Promise (CCP) coursework, as well as athletics, extracurriculars and fine arts programming.
