Northwest High School

Knights Credit Union

We are excited to announce that Northwest High School will be opening our very own student-run financial institution, the Knights Credit Union! The Knights Credit Union (KCU) is a partnership between NWHS and the Cincinnati Police Federal Credit Union.

The goal of the Knights Credit Union is to provide students with real-life financial lessons by allowing them to open and manage their own accounts including:

  • Savings Accounts
  • Checking Accounts with Debit Cards
  • Certificates 

Just as math, science and English are an important part of our curriculum, money management skills are important too. The Knights Credit Union will support Northwest’s financial education curriculum and help lay the foundation for a healthy financial future for our students.

Open an Account Today!

Students, parents, faculty, staff and alumni may open an account. To get started, complete the Knights Credit Union Membership Application and return it to the credit union.

Knights Credit Union is located inside the Northwest High School cafeteria. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday during lunch bells.
