High School: Student-Run Credit Unions

High School: Student-Run Credit Unions

Aug 30 2017 | Written By Jennifer McHugh | Director of Public Affairs and Financial Education

Royal Credit Union opened its first student-run credit union at Memorial High School in Eau Claire, WI in 2002. Today, the program has expanded to 5 high schools in Wisconsin and one in Minnesota.  Check out a list of our school locations here.

Our state-of-the-art location at Eden Prairie High School in Minnesota features a unique, multi-functional design, convenient access to banking services for students and staff, and a cool place for our team to help students learn to become smart savers and spenders. Partial funding for the EPHS location was provided by the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation. EPHS student tellers and our financial education supervisor explain the program and how it’s setting students up for future success.
