Credit Union Branch To Open In High School

Stuart High School in Bailey's Crossroads will open a student-run branch of Apple Federal Credit Union tomorrow.
With the opening of the credit union during lunch hours, Stuart High becomes the newest high school to open an Apple FCU branch. Other schools planning branches this year include Centreville and West Potomac High Schools, South County Secondary School and Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology.

Students can open a savings account and become a member of Apple FCU with a $5 deposit. Products and services are available to students and their parents at schools with student-run branches.
For 10 years, high schools in Northern Virginia have partnered with Apple FCU to help students gain real-world financial experience.
Other Fairfax County high schools currently participating in the program include Annandale, Chantilly, Edison, Fairfax, Falls Church, Herndon, Langley, Lee, Marshall, Mount Vernon, Oakton, Westfield and Robinson Secondary School.
Students in accounting classes will staff the Stuart branch as managers and tellers. Daily operations such as deposits, withdrawals and new member processing take place at the student branch.
