The primary objective of ACAP is to increase the understanding of accounting and business career opportunities among high school students from underrepresented ethnic groups. Through ACAP’s efforts, students have received educational enrichment experiences and practical help needed for college preparation and a career in accounting.


ACAP began in 1980 when NABA recognized the need for a program that would direct African-Americans and other minorities towards the accounting and finance profession. Recognizing that preparation for a professional career begins in  middle and high school, NABA designed a pilot program that would be informative, yet go beyond words. Accordingly, the one-week residency concept was developed.

During the week, students will have the opportunity to attend classes on careers in accounting and business, personal development and college preparation; tour college campuses, local companies, and CPA firms; and invite their parent(s) or guardian(s) to a banquet in commemoration of their completion of the program.
