Addition Financial Credit Union and the School District of Osceola County have announced an expansion of their High School Branch Program partnership, with plans to open a student-run Addition Financial branch at Osceola High School. 

Addition Financial’s High School Branch Program is designed to introduce young people to financial literacy and money management skills. The credit union will provide full training to Osceola High School students who are accepted into the program and will prepare them to fully staff and run the credit union branch, to be located on the Osceola High School campus.

The branch, scheduled to open during the 2024-2025 school year, will be Addition Financial’s 11th high school branch in Central Florida, and the 3rd in Osceola County. 

“The two existing branches at Poinciana and St. Cloud High Schools have proven instrumental in equipping our students with invaluable financial literacy skills and laying a strong foundation for their future careers,” said Dr. Mark Shanoff, Superintendent of the Osceola School District. “Our school district is excited that Addition Financial is expanding the program to Osceola High School as we work to ensure every student is future ready.” 

Addition Financial’s high school branches are run by the high school tellers and conduct transactions just as tellers would in a traditional branch setting. Some student tellers become full-time Addition Financial team members upon graduation and are eligible for exclusive scholarships.

“Teachers founded our credit union more than 85 years ago, and we are proud to honor that commitment by supporting students and education today,” said Kevin Miller, President and CEO of Addition Financial. “Giving students a hands-on opportunity to understand how financial institutions operate helps serve our mission to bring financial education and success to everyone.”
