Dear High School Student:
ACAP (Accounting Career Awareness Program) is a one-week residency program for high school students interested in a career in accounting or business. The program introduces students to accounting, finance, economics, and management through a focused, undergraduate-level program taught by college faculty and guest lecturers in business and government. During the week, students have the opportunity to attend classes on careers in accounting and business, personal development and college preparation and tour college campuses, local companies, and CPA firms. The program concludes with the students inviting their parent(s) or guardian(s) to a closing luncheon or banquet in commemoration of their completion of the program at the end of the week.
