Students in their Junior or Senior year are eligible to enroll in the Honors Banking class taught by Mrs. Meier.
In order to enroll, students must go through an application and interview process. If selected for the Honors Banking class, students will become employees of Christian Financial Credit Union and go through a mandatory training process during the summer before school starts.
Class curriculum covers banking basics from account types, to more thorough details on how the Federal Reserve works, and even in-depth investment information from experts.
GET AHEAD OF THE REST
During the Honors Banking class, students will receive real work experience, as well as resume-building skills and a part-time job. Students will begin in the summer of 2021 and may have the opportunity to work part-time at one of our ten branches.
