Put Your Child Ahead of the Competition for College!
With the ever-increasing competition for college admissions, it is now recommended that students explore areas of interest at an early age and start “preparing for college” in middle school.
Many traditional and top-tier colleges have become “test optional” narrowing the odds for students who, in the past, would have relied heavily on their SAT and ACT scores to gain admittance.
With the absence of these standardized test scores, admissions counselors, not wanting to look solely at high school grades as an objective measure of achievement, are now focusing more on a student’s extracurricular activities, community involvement and non-academic accomplishments.
Teach Me Wall Street prepares high school students for the admissions process, college, and careers.
We offer virtual programs on a variety of finance and business-related topics that help develop interests and insight about career options and pathways to independence and success.
Our finance extracurricular programs encourage students to be leaders, good team players and active members in their community.
Not only for Students with an Interest in Finance
Teach Me Wall Street programs cover topics that all students need, but are not always taught in school.
When you think about careers on Wall Street, what usually comes to mind are Brokers, Traders, Investment Bankers, and other jobs typically filled by those with degrees in Finance and Economics. These are traditional Wall Street careers, but there are many other jobs in the finance industry for Lawyers, and more recently, for those with STEM backgrounds.
Teach Me Wall Street programs are not just for students interested in careers on Wall Street. We cover topics that all students need, but are not always taught in school.
We strive to empower students with real-world knowledge about money and investing. We teach students how to create a budget, understand interest rates, use credit cards wisely, manage a 401K and more. These are valuable skills students will need in college, in their careers, and in life
Every financial service company employs lawyers. They have expertise in laws that pertain to antitrust, trade, securities and financial services. Government agencies such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission make sure that Wall Street trading and other activities are in compliance with current regulations and laws.
STEM professionals have become increasingly important to the financial services industry as well - Technology continues to innovate the way the industry operates. There is an advance in quantitative trading, and Wall Street companies are now hiring Quantitative Analysts, Data Scientists, and Machine Learning Experts who can understand the algorithms at work on the trading floor. Those with backgrounds in Math, Physics and Engineering are in high demand to build and refine computer programs, and fix glitches.
