Welcome to My Finance Class, the official website for Financial Services and BPA at Northwest High School.
“I will remember this class because it has taught me vital life lessons, allowed me to gain new friendships, and most importantly, allowed me to become a member of BPA and gain experiences that I never would have gained if I hadn’t joined this class.”
Diajah Kidd, 2018
|“When I first sat down for the first day of Financial Services, I never expected to learn what I have now. We got to spend two bells together ... learning about business, sharing jokes, making friends, and most importantly building memories. I loved every moment of it.”
Ryan Cartwright, 2017
|“This class will live on with me later in life and the useful information that I learned will stick with me as well. I wish this class was brought to the attention of more people and people realized what they were missing out on, because this class is awesome.” Trevor Barton, 2016|
|“Financial Services was my favorite class this year! Not just because we got doughnuts after every test and were able to sit in comfortable chairs … but because we learned about things that I am actually interested in and can apply to my life.” Stephanie Russell, 2015|
|“My two years in Financial Services have been amazing and if I could, I would do it all over again!” Antenajia Carter, 2014|

|“Through the many group projects and activities, Financial Services allows everyone to open up and truly be themselves. It’s like the class gently nudges every single person out into the water until one day you look down and realize you’ve been swimming on your own … and you’re completely fine.”
Jenna Ahr, 2016
|“This class means a lot to me and it showed me so much about myself that I never even knew. Never in a million years would I have thought about being an entrepreneur and making my own business …"
