90% Graduate. 4/5 pursue college or post-secondary education.
More than 90% of NAF Academy students graduate from high school—compared to 50% in the urban areas where most NAF Academies exist; four out of five graduates pursue college or other post-secondary education.
NAF’s success in raising the standard of academic and financial achievement among young people – especially among underperforming students – has garnered the endorsement of corporations, public policy makers, and foundations, such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
NAF Academies function as dynamic partnerships and collaborations between schools, teachers, administrators, business volunteers, and an active Advisory Board led by industry professionals. Some Academies operate as smaller schools within larger public high schools; others function as stand-alone public schools.
Each year, NAF serves more than 50,000 students in approximately 500 Academies in 41 states,the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Students choose from among the following Academy themes: Academy of Finance, Academy of Hospitality & Tourism, Academy of Information Technology, and Academy of Engineering.
