NAF Academy of Finance at Lancaster High School

    NAF’s Academy of Finance connects high school students with the world of financial services, offering a curriculum that covers entrepreneurship, banking and credit, financial planning, international finance, securities, insurance, accounting, and economics, among other topics.

    In addition to studying career-focused curriculum and working on collaborative projects, AOF students gain critical career knowledge through a series of work-based learning activities both inside and outside of the classroom. 

    NAFTrack Certification, NAF’s student certification assessment system, validates successful course completion, projects, and internships. By receiving a passing score on end-ofcourse exams and satisfactory scores on culminating project and internship assessments, students earn the NAFTrack Certification, signifying to post-secondary institutions and employers that they are both college and career ready.

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment in business and financial operations occupations will increase by 12.5% by 2022. Employment in securities, commodity contracts and related activities is expected to expand 13.5% by 2022.
