Mission Statement/Information

 

Students who are accepted into the Wall High School Business and Finance Academy will tailor their elective choices to a focus on business and finance. They must take a minimum of 20 credits of mandatory business courses and successfully complete an internship between the summer of their junior and senior years. Applications are accepted each Spring from rising Freshmen and Sophomores only. Community business leaders partner with Wall High School by securing internships, shadowing experiences, volunteering in classrooms, acting as mentors and serving on our advisory board. Students in the WBFA will have opportunities to shadow businesses, to fundraise and work in our school store, which is “owned and operated” by the WBFA, to participate on field trips and to partake in community service events. Professional development workshops are also provided for WBFA members through our Academy Knights program. Students who complete the program will be graduates of the Wall High School Business and Finance Academy and will receive a “Certificate of Business and Financial Studies” as well as a medal to wear at their Wall High School graduation ceremony.
