Overview

American College Adventure’s Internship Program propels pre-college students toward future success by giving them the opportunity to experience the type of work they aspire to perform while partnering with a mentor in their field of study. The four-week program offers options in Boston and New York.

Pre-college students augment their classroom education through hands-on training in their field by enrolling in the Internship Program run by American Collegiate Adventures. Placed in internships at renowned companies in Boston and New York City, students live in secure residence halls or commute during the four-week program.

ACA matches students with companies in more than 20 different industries. The program helps students build their resume and receive the kind of experiential education that employers look for in recent graduates. Students are placed in top companies in diverse areas including business, marketing, law, fashion, journalism, healthcare, music and real estate.

A typical weekday schedule features internships from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., bookended by breakfast and lunch and followed up by free time, dinner and a variety of evening activities. Safety is a top priority for ACA, which houses staff members in residences and has staff accompany students on all activities and excursions. The front desks at the residences are also staffed 24 hours per day. There is a 10 to 1 student to staff ratio.

In New York City, American Collegiate Adventures internship participants stay at Columbia University. The city offers endless cultural and recreational activities for students to enjoy and the dorms are well-equipped. In Boston, students stay at Suffolk University, located downtown and within a quick walk of many of the city’s most historic sites.
