Academy of Finance Juniors Have Unique Opportunity!

aofdualThe Academy of Finance juniors will have a unique educational opportunity this school year. They can earn 3 college credits this spring. This is a great chance to show colleges and potential employers what they have accomplished as a high school student. Tuition, books, application, and registration fees are ALL covered by the Academy of Finance.

Three one-credit college-level courses in Financial Literacy (SSC130, SSC131, SSC132) will be taught to Howard’s Academy of Finance students. The courses will start on January 13, 2015 and run through June 5, 2015.

Students who are successful in the college level courses will earn credit at the college/university AND on their high school transcript. This 3-credit elective will count towards any Business related Associates Degree at Del Tech.

Showing a high school college experience is ALSO a great addition on the student’s resume (regardless of their college and career choices). It shows that they have demonstrated success in a college level course.

The Del Tech Registrar visited Howard High School on November 25 to enroll all AOF 11th grade students (19). The registered students attended an orientation on the Wilmington campus of Del Tech on December 4th.

Representatives from AT&T teamed up with Wilmington Mayor Dennis P. Williams and Wilmington Councilman Robert A. Williams to speak to Howard High School of Technology students during a special assembly on the morning of Thursday, September 19, 2013 about the dangers of texting while driving. Students watched a riveting short documentary video, “From One Second to the Next,” which featured victims, victims’ families, and drivers who caused grave injury to others while texting. Students were asked to sign a pledge not to text and drive.”No text is worth risking your life or the life of someone else,” said Mayor Williams. Howard was asked to host the event as a way to raise awareness among teen drivers. More information is available at ItCanWait.com or #itcanwait.
