We are pleased to partner with the Christian Credit Union to offer bank accounts to our students, grades one through twelve! This program not only assists youth with managing their money, the school benefits too!
CCU awards savings bonuses to students that meet their grade level goal ( $1 a month times their grade. For example Grade 4 student would deposit $4 a month and the CCU would give them a $0.50 bonus for each month they deposit a minimum of $4. Students in Grades 7-12 have the opportunity to gain bonuses of up to $2.50 if they save 5 times their grade level.) All bonuses awarded to students are also matched and donated to the school so it is a win-win for all.
