Royal Credit Union
Eden Prairie High School’s student-run credit union branch located in The Perch, was created in partnership between Royal Credit Union and Eden Prairie Schools. The unique, multi-functional design offers use of the space as a credit union during hours of operation and a contemporary gathering space for students when the financial institution is not in use. Select Eden Prairie High School students enrolled in the Business & Marketing Intern program staff the credit union along with a Royal Credit Union Supervisor. Students and staff of Eden Prairie High School are able to conduct common financial transactions such as deposits and withdrawals. Royal Credit Union in The Perch is open Monday through Friday during third period (approximately 11 a.m to 1 p.m.).
In addition to encouraging saving and providing convenient access for staff and students, Royal Credit Union offers financial education in the classrooms and the community. Team members present educational sessions throughout the school year on topics including saving, budgeting and preparing for college.
Royal Credit Union is a not-for-profit, federally insured credit union serving over 160,000 members across Minnesota and Wisconsin. Currently, Royal has 28 school sites at the elementary, middle and high school level. In addition to 24 branch locations, Royal is part of the Co-Op Shared Branching Network, giving members access to more than 5,000 branches in the United States.
