ACA 2022 will be the summer we will never forget! Our on-campus programs for high school and middle school students were a great success! ACA worked closely with various local, state and national agencies to formulate a plan to provide students a bit of normalcy at a very unusual time. We would like to thank parents for their incredible support and confidence in our organization, and we want to thank our students for helping to keep all of us safe by following all of the COVID-19 safety guidelines and protocols.
The leadership and staff here at ACA are proud to have successfully provided students two summers of on-campus programs with all students and staff returning home COVID free. We are thrilled to have been able to give our students a sense of normalcy while preparing for college, making memories, and meeting new lifelong friends with safety as our number one priority.
ACA was founded 29 years ago, and the cornerstone of our 29 years has been the safety of its students and staff. Our guiding philosophy has been to boost the confidence and comfort of students on the verge of new academic and social challenges. It is our hope that every ACA student returns from our summer programs with a greater understanding of the opportunities ahead and a true appreciation of future friendships and new experiences. With ACA, we’ve found a way to give students a good look at college life, a way to grow and learn, and plenty of time to have an awesome summer experience. Here at ACA, we believe you will become part of the most well rounded, personalized pre-college program available anywhere. We look forward to summer 2022!
We understand that there may be questions and concerns regarding 2022 ACA summer programs during these uncertain times. We will continue to offer information and guidance to our ACA families as the wellbeing, safety, and health of our students and staff is always our number one priority. The cornerstone of our organization for almost 30 years has been safety, and it is our number one priority and concern. We are continuing to closely monitor all updates regarding COVID-19 and are in touch with the World Health Organization and American Camp Association, as well as, following the CDC and US State Department guidelines and updates.
