EPF Add-on Endorsement

Since adopting the Economics and Personal Finance required course for high school students in 2011, Virginia has become a clear national leader in preparing students with a most essential life skill: understanding personal finance and the related economic principles behind effective financial management. The add-on endorsement is a logical and compelling next step and one that will keep the Commonwealth a best practices state in financial education. Thank you for pursuing this endorsement, which the Virginia Bankers Association strongly supports.
