The Monticello High School Academy of Finance is a
four-year program that students can first apply to at the
end of eighth grade. It is open to all students, regardless
of future career interests as the skills obtained through
participation in the Academy of Finance are beneficial in
all career choices. The Academy of Finance offers hands-on
finance curriculum including SUNY Sullivan college courses.
AOF seniors learn about contributing positively to their
community by becoming IRS certified through the VITA program
to prepare tax returns for qualified individuals.
This program is a member program of the National Academy Foundation (NAF), which was founded in New York City by a partnership of schools and the financial services industry. There are over 700 NAF Academies in the United States.
Our Academy works with local businesses and both education and government leaders to design and offer financial education opportunities for Monticello High School students through job shadowing, guest speakers, field experiences, senior year mentoring, and a summer internship program.
