About School Bank

The School Bank program was established by Wayne County Bank in January 1996. The program was designed to help school-age youth learn the value and importance of saving money as well as offering a unique opportunity for students to deposit money into their personal savings accounts right at school. 

Wayne County Bank School Bank is available to students 0-18 years old in Wayne and Lewis Counties. Students who open and contribute to their school bank savings accounts enjoy special benefits — like spinning the Wheel of Savings to win free money to add to their savings accounts. They may also at times receive special prizes such as stickers, pencils, tattoos, and more. 

The children who take part in school banking are learning about the importance of saving money and are taught financial responsibility. These lessons will benefit them the rest of their lives. With School Bank, kids can watch their money grow!
