Finance Academy helps prepare students for life after high school

Individuals in the Finance Academy are learning real world financial applications that will assist them throughout their life. In addition to learning the time value of money and many calculations associated with it, seniors have researched their planned career fields, found a job for after college, created a resume, filled out mock applications to obtain that desired job. After being hired, students were then able to begin a budget for purchasing a car by evaluating loan options and completed a mock loan application. Up next, students will begin looking for a place to live on their own! Students in the Finance Academy are eligible to receive dual-credits from both Purdue Fort Wayne and Indiana Kelley School of Business. If interested in learning more, please contact Jenna Burns.

District Strategic Plan

This fall, MSD of Warren Township will be creating a comprehensive strategic plan based on community input that will ensure all students and staff have the conditions necessary to develop and apply Journey of a Graduate (JoG) skills and dispositions. The Journey of a Graduate skills are a set of 6 skills and dispositions that have been identified by our community needed for success in and out of school. The JoG skills are Critical Thinking, Citizenship, Communication, Collaboration, Content Knowledge, and Resilience. These JoG skills will serve as the foundation of the district strategic plan.

One way the district will capture community input is through an online survey. Linked below is a short survey that will ask questions around our strengths as a district and help us identify areas for improvement.
