Financial Planning Academy, developed by Texas Tech University and funded by Charles Schwab Foundation, is a unique summer program that offers rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors education and training in the core areas of personal financial management. The week will include working on a financial planning case study, developing a financial plan, and participating in other competitions for scholarships and prizes. In addition to promoting financial literacy among America's youth, the camp will provide insight into the Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) industry and show students the value of financial planning as a profession.
