As accounting is the language of business, this program is designed to provide exceptional high school students an overview of the many career opportunities in the accounting profession and a brief introduction of business.

ARP students will attend instructional sessions during the day, with fun activities scheduled in the evenings. The daytime sessions will provide insights into career opportunities in accounting and related fields through panel discussions with national and regional accounting firms and representatives from industry groups and government agencies.

Other sessions will introduce important job skills, including:

  • Resume writing
  • Workplace ethics
  • Business etiquette
  • Financial literacy
  • Leadership development

Students also get to sample "college life" by lodging in UGA residence halls, eating in the university’s award-winning dining halls, and attending lectures by UGA professors. The evenings are filled with fun outings, entertaining diversions, and time to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow ARP participants.

Program Tuition: $95. A limited number of need-based financial scholarships are available upon acceptance.

For more information, please contact program director Randy Groomes.
