Our Program

Whether you’re headed into the workforce, headed to higher education, or both - high school is the final step in making sure you’re ready. We’re proud to be part of that preparation with our Financial Education programming.

A Passion for education

The communities we serve will tell you that Commonwealth Credit Union is no stranger to the classroom. That's why we were thrilled when Kentucky passed a law requiring all high school students to complete financial education programming. We immediately scaled up our program, Common Cents on Campus, which now fully aligns with - and exceeds - the Kentucky Department of Education’s Financial Literacy Standards for grades 9-12.

Common Cents on Campus

With Commonwealth Credit Union's Common Cents on Campus, you can explore individual topics and access a variety of learning courses. Plus, our Financial Education Team is available as a resource to develop custom relationships, facilitate workshops, and celebrate student success.
