Students are making a commitment to the full four (4) years of the program that includes the courses outlined in the curriculum sequence.
Regular updates may be sent home via email to both the Academy member and parent/guardian. It is necessary for me to have a valid email address on file.
Students must report to Academy activities and job shadowing opportunities dressed appropriately in business attire and/or our specified Academy uniform.
Students must maintain academic excellence while enrolled in the Academy. This includes striving to maintain a cumulative GPA (weighted) of at least a 2.5 at the end of each academic semester. Dismissal from the program may result if my GPA falls below this standard. (A performance improvement plan will be completed before being removed)
All academy students must complete academy requirements (i.e. course selections, job shadowing, internships,lunch and learns,etc.) to graduate from the career academy.
Automatic dismissal from the program will result from continuing disciplinary problems with any teacher or after a suspension from school.
Participation and/or support of scheduled academy meeting/activities are expected of all members. Participation will be documented in the work-based learning portfolio that will be maintained throughout my Academy experience.
An academy polo is required (approximately $25, one time investment) academy t-shirts can be purchased every year (approximately $12). Financial assistance is available for need based students.
Being a part of the Academy of Finance program is an amazing opportunity not available to all students. Students understand that by being accepted into this program they are committing to be an Academy participant during their entire high school career. It is also understood that it is the goal of the Academy Director to help students complete this program successfully.
