The National Academy Foundation received a two-year, $250,000 grant from the New York Life Foundation
to support strategic growth and an increase in the number of students in Academies of Finance in 14 schools in seven states.
AOF connects high school students considered to be at very high risk of academic failure with the world of financial services
by offering a curriculum that covers banking and credit, financial planning, international finance, securities, insurance, accounting and economics, coupled with work-based learning experiences.
The new AOFs are located in: Birmingham, Ala.; Pasadena and Sacramento, Calif.; New Haven, Conn.; Louisville, Ky. (two); Laurel, Oxon Hill and Riverdale, Md.; Barker, Clarence and Rochester, N.Y.; Las Vegas; and Oklahoma City, Okla.
