HOW DO I APPLY TO THE ACADEMY OF FINANCE?
STEP 1: Read through the Application Packet. Information pertinent to the application process can be found at the bottom of this page. Please read through the packet appropriate for your grade level.
STEP 2: Complete the Application. Interested students should carefully complete the online application, making sure to accurately fill in all requested information. Note that there is an essay requirement; the essay topic is “Tell us why you are interested in being selected for this program.” It is recommended that you complete the essay in a separate Google Doc prior to filling out any other part of the application so that it is ready to upload at the time you complete the application. You must be logged into your school Google account to complete the application; for this reason it is recommended that you complete your application on your school-issued Chromebook.
STEP 3: Get Two Teacher Recommendations. You must ask two teachers if they will fill out an online recommendation form for you. To do this, follow the directions in the Teacher Recommendations file.
Submit all applications and recommendations by February 26, 2021.
IMPORTANT NOTE! All students applying to the AOF should request the following two (2) courses be added to their 9th grade schedule: Leadership Skills & Development (½ year course) & iComp I (½ year course)
