Financial literacy and giving back to the community are important components of Valley State Bank. In 2016, Valley State Bank opened a full-service educational branch inside Campus High School in partnership with Haysville USD 261. Valley State Bank works alongside student interns to advance financial literacy.
The bank operates in conjunction with the Money and Banking class offered by Campus High School. As part of the training, Valley State Bank periodically sends bank officers to Campus High School to give presentations on topics that are important for students. Topics covered include going over the basics of a checking account, creating a budget, bank management, understanding credit and learning about savings and investment options. Student interns learn customer service, scheduling, how to count money, write checks and fill out bank forms. Interns take what they have learned and give presentations to other classes at Campus High School.
Student customers are also able to learn how to use our Colt Checking account, a no-charge checking account, and manage their money. Our specially designed Student Checking is available for all students between the ages of 14-19 years old, regardless of which school they attend. For more information, see our Student Checking account.
In addition to providing financial education at Campus High School, Valley State Bank also visits other schools, giving financial presentations and providing tours of bank facilities.
Financial education is important to Valley State Bank and imperative for children of the future.
