Pre-College Career Accelerator at University of Maryland

Located in College Park, Maryland, the University of Maryland boasts extensive research and entrepreneurial options for its students. As the nation's first "Do Good" campus, students participating in this program will take their accelerated learning and have UM's ideals as a foundation to make an extraordinary impact. With access to Hyattsville and Riverdale Park, students are connected to the community for shopping, dining, and activities. You can also take in the Discovery District, the connecting hub between campus and the downtown area. Campus is also a metro ride away from Washington, D.C. so students will have access to the diverse and bustling infrastructure offered by our nation's capital while also settling in to the small-town college atmosphere and the established local network it provides. 

With access to some of the best medical schools in the country including Johns Hopkins, government facilities including NASA's Full Scale Wind Tunnel Propeller, Lockheed Martin, and the Department of Treasury, students will feel the true acceleration of their program and create a long-lasting and wide-reaching professional network.
