Welcome to Boston!

ACA’s program gives you the chance to spend a memorable three weeks in the nation’s ultimate college town. Ask Hub City residents what makes their hometown great and you’re going to hear plenty, from American history to pro sports loyalty. ACA’s Boston program is set on the picturesque campus of Suffolk University, in the heart of downtown with easy access to one of America’s most exciting cities. You’ll get to enjoy everything that makes Boston great – especially in the summer! From Newbury Street to Davis Square, the combination of big-city excitement and unbeatable college-town charm has something for everyone.

Your Stay with ACA

Suffolk University shows you a vibrant campus perfectly situated in the heart of the city to take advantage of all the excitement Boston has to offer in the summertime.

Rest assured, ACA understands the importance of being comfortable in your home away from home. This means safe, clean, comfortable accommodations. You will have access to excellent health and recreational facilities and to food service that won’t have you hungry for home cooking. We pride ourselves on the fact that our residences, food service and fitness amenities offer ACA students the very best of any summer pre-college enrichment program. ACA creates a unique environment where you’ll be able to concentrate on getting the most out of your summer, staying refreshed and ready to excel.

Amazing Activities

Afternoons and evening activities are yours to enjoy. Spend an afternoon rowing along the Charles River, polish your backhand or toss a Frisbee in Boston Common. Visit Faneuil Hall Marketplace for serious shopping and dining, then be the first to see one of the summer’s blockbuster flicks. Feeling patriotic? The Paul Revere House is an experience that can’t be missed, and check out the Ghosts and Gravestones Tour if you’re feeling brave. This fantastic city offers endless unique opportunities, and ACA helps you find the ones that interest you most.

The Finest Fitness Facilities

You’ll have access to outstanding athletic facilities. Keep your workout routine or connect with friends for some competition. Whatever your game, you’ll be able to stay in shape and keep your skills sharp! You’ll have full use of the running tracks, basketball courts, outdoor playing fields and weight rooms. And if you’d prefer some fresh air, we’re always close to scenic running and cycling paths, softball and soccer fields, and green space perfect for a game of catch or Frisbee. Don’t forget to pack your workout gear!

Safety and Supervision

ACA has always been committed to absolute safety for every student. We maintain a ten-to-one student-to-staff ratio – one of the lowest in the industry – to ensure everyone gets the unmatched attention and unique personalized programs they deserve. As part of our commitment to student safety, ACA staff members live on student-occupied floors, accompany students on all activities and excursions, and are always equipped with cellphones for emergencies.

Travel to Boston

We recommend that students fly nonstop to Boston Logan Airport (BOS) International Airport. There they will be met by ACA staff members, who will escort them to comfortable, air-conditioned shuttles for the brief drive to campus.
