County Schools Federal Credit Union’s roots date back to January 14, 1960, formerly known as Ventura Schools Federal Credit Union. A group of eight educators had a vision to create a credit union, a not-for-profit financial cooperative to service the educational community in Ventura County: embracing the credit union motto, “people helping people.”
County Schools Federal Credit Union remains true to its roots as it continues to support Ventura County's educational community and their families while educating their members in terms of financial prosperity.
Our Vision and Mission
To be the primary financial institution of choice by providing the highest quality experience for every member.
County Schools Federal Credit Union is a member owned financial institution whose staff and volunteers are committed to operating a financially sound credit union by providing our members financial services of the highest quality and security with personal and professional integrity while pursuing sound and steady growth in support of Ventura County’s educational community and their families.
- We are not-for-profit. No stockholders. Simply, members helping members. And, members supporting education.
- We provide financial literacy for all ages from elementary to middle school, high school, and adult courses. No matter your age group all programs teach the practical financial skills, habits, and values necessary to save and handle money.

- We are devoted to improving the financial well-being of our members and the educational community that we serve.
