Apple's Student-Run Credit Union Program (SRCU) brings real world financial literacy and education into schools within Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, Stafford and Frederick Counties.

Beginning with Robert E. Lee High School in 1995, the SRCU program has expanded its reach and is active in 25 high schools and middle schools today. It’s the hundreds of student employees performing banking services for the students at each school that make this program a success.

What is the Student-Run Credit Union Program?

Apple and the partner school join to open a fully functioning Apple FCU branch inside the school building. Students are ‘hired’ as employees and receive hands-on experience learning and performing all duties from accepting membership applications to processing deposits. The goal is for students to become financially educated and gain real-world work experience. Plus, the students using the branch gain money management skills.

Who can do business at the school branches?

Only students, faculty and staff that work at the school can conduct business at the SRCU during the day. The branches are open during the school lunch periods and sometimes before and/or after school.
