NAF is a national network of education, business, and community leaders who work together to ensure high school students are college, career, and future ready.
NAF’s educational design ignites students’ passion for learning and gives businesses the opportunity to shape America’s future workforce by transforming the learning environment to include STEM infused industry-specific curricula and work-based learning experiences, including internships. NAF has grown from one NAF Academy of Finance in New York City to hundreds of academies across the country focusing on growing industries including: finance, hospitality & tourism, information technology, engineering, and health sciences.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) has 62 NAF academies at 30 M-DCPS high schools preparing our students for their futures (2 more planned for next school year.) Our NAF academy themes include: Engineering, Finance, Health Sciences, Hospitality & Tourism, Information Technology, and Other (Agriscience and Teaching.)
Outperforming all other U.S. school districts, Miami-Dade holds the distinction of having 12 Model and 19 Distinguished NAF Academies.
