CREDIT FOR LIFE PROGRAM


On Wednesday, 3/29, the juniors will be called to the auditorium at 9:55 for an extended advisory presentation. Junior advisors should report to the auditorium for the regular advisory period. The presentation is an orientation for the Credit for Life fair.

The Credit for Life Fair Program for MHS juniors is scheduled for Thursday, May 18th this year.
The fair takes place in the gymnasium and generally runs from 8:00-10:00.

What is the Credit for Life Program?

The Credit for Life Fair is a financial literacy exercise where high school seniors are asked to make decisions on how to spend their money. Students role-play the position of a 25-year old adult with a career, a salary, and a credit score. They are assigned a mock checking and savings account balance and possibly a student loan payment, depending on the career they selected. Based on their mock salary, they must make decisions that affect their finances, such as renting an apartment on their own or having a roommate, buying or leasing a vehicle, purchasing furniture, and saving for their retirement. There is a booth set up for each financial decision the students will have to make. Our goal for the students is to have a better understanding of their future fiscal responsibilities. We teach them about balancing a budget and making choices about their finances. They also learn how one financial choice can greatly impact another.

One of the most important booths at the Credit for Life Fair is the credit score booth. We use this booth to educate the students on what a credit score is and how their future will be impacted with a low, med, or high credit score. Students are given a completely random credit score at the very beginning of the fair which will greatly affect their experience.

Lastly, credit counselors will review each student's final budget one-on-one to ensure solvency or to help students learn how to live within their budget. Managing their own budget and seeing the actual cost of things will leave students with a whole new perspective on real-life financial management.

Schedule for the day:

Our juniors and seniors will be participating in the fair in two separate waves.

The juniors will participate in the fair from 8:00 to approximately 9:45.

The seniors from approximately 10:00 to the start of third lunch. All seniors will attend third lunch.



Credit for Life - March 2014 Patch Article



HOW TO APPLY TO ATTEND A MILITARY ACADEMY

There are five Service Academies:

To be considered for an appointment to a service academy, an applicant must have a nomination from an authorized nominating source. The law pertaining to Congressional appointments for each of the U.S. Service Academies stipulates that a Member of Congress is allowed a maximum of five persons at each Academy in any given year (except for the Merchant Marine Academy and the Coast Guard Academy, explained below). This quota determines the number of vacancies for each entering class.

Regulations governing the Academies stipulate that the prospective nominee must reside in the Congressional District of the nominating Congressman. Senators are also given nominating authority. While a Congressperson nominates within their Congressional District, a Senator nominates applicants from the entire state.

Members of Congress may nominate applicants who meet the eligibility requirements established by law. The following requirements must be met by the applicant as of July 1 of the year of admission to an academy:

  • Applicant must be at least 17 years old, but not have passed the 23rd birthday
  • Applicant must be a U.S. Citizen
  • Applicant cannot be married, pregnant, or have any legal obligation to support children or other dependents
Candidates are appointed to the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point on a statewide basis. Each year the State of Connecticut has five vacancies at the Academy and each Congressperson is entitled to submit the names of ten prospective candidates. Nominees then compete with the nominees of the rest of the Connecticut delegation for admittance.

The Coast Guard Academy does not require a Congressional Nomination. Candidates are appointed on a competitive basis. To be eligible, you must contact the Coast Guard Academy directly for an application.


  • The Academies require that applicants be both mentally and physically strong.
  • In addition to a high school transcript, SAT and ACT scores are reviewed.
  • Typically, Academy nominees have been in the top 40% of their high school class.
  • Each candidate is also required to take a Physical Aptitude Test (PAT) to determine his/her readiness to participate in the rigorous sports and physical education programs at the Service Academies.
  • Although each Academy has its own test requirements, all are designed to measure such qualities of strength, endurance, agility, and coordination.
