Depew High School's Academy of Finance began in the 2014-15 school year.
Students participating in the Academy of Finance will have opportunities to work directly with local business leaders to learn what it takes to be successful in the working world. This will occur through guest lectures, job shadows and field trips to area businesses. Sponsored by the National Academy Foundation, this program is a unique opportunity for students at DHS to enroll in a program that offers opportunities beyond those normally seen in a classroom.
They will be required to complete a paid and unpaid internship with local business partners. In addition they will have opportunities to obtain college credit for courses taken within the academy. Students completing the Finance Academy program will obtain the communication skills, job seeking skills, and curriculum mastery that will enable them to pursue the career of their choice, whether it be business related or within another field.
Business Professionals: The Academy seeks local businesses or organizations that would like to be involved with the implementation of the AOF. There are various levels of involvement and commitment needed; classroom speakers, advisory board member and committee chairpersons. Meet the Members of the AOF Advisory Board
