Thank you to Swift Fox Media and the students at Fox Chapel Area High School for filming and editing this video series. 

We have observed a meaningful and positive impact in the classroom through students creating “personal” financial plans, i.e. a roadmap for their future financial lives.  In partnership with the CFA Society of Pittsburgh, a Collegiate Financial Planning competition has been held each of the past two years. You can view samples of the financial plans below.
