Are you inspired by entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington and Mark Zuckerberg? Now you can join their ranks and get a jump start on the path to running your own business.

The JA Company Program is a unique after-school opportunity for high school students interested in exploring their entrepreneurial potential. With help from corporate mentors at SC&H, a highly regarded local accounting firm, you and your team members from Hereford High will conceptualize an idea for a product or service, capitalize your venture, market your offering, and reap the profits! Whatever your interests or strengths, there is a place for you in the student company.

The JA Company Program requires a certain level of commitment, which you must be willing to make. This program is a great experience, but relies on the effort of the students involved to make it successful.
