History of JA Finance Park® in greater washington
In Fall 2010, in partnership with Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), Junior Achievement of Greater Washington opened the doors to the first JA Finance Park® in Greater Washington on the grounds of Robert Frost Middle School in Fairfax, VA. JA Finance Park® Fairfax County brings in-depth, experiential financial literacy education to 14,000 8th grade students each year.
In partnership with Prince George's County Public Schools, JA Finance Park® Prince George’s County opened during the fall of 2015 in Landover, MD and will serve approximately 9,000 students annually. It is located on the campus of Cora L. Rice Elementary/James G. Gholson Middle Schools just down the road from FedEx field.
A third facility, JA Finance Park® Montgomery County is scheduled to open in 2018 and will transform another 12,000 students annually into Finance Park graduates. It will be located on the fourth floor of the new Thomas Edison High School of Technology building in Silver Spring.
Both of these additional partnerships were made possible by the partnerships of the local school systems and capital funding from Capital One.
