DETROIT (AP) - Financial services business Deloitte is partnering with the private Cornerstone Schools in Detroit on an education program to prepare students in urban areas for life beyond the classroom.

Plans call for the “Deloitte Cornerstone Career Pathways” program to start this fall for the 2015-2016 school year.

The program is aimed at becoming a template for similar efforts across the country. Organizers say it will focus on building students’ skills in math and accounting, analytical problem solving, general management, business ethics and related areas.

Current and prospective students in grades five through nine will be automatically enrolled. Students in grades 10 and above will be able to apply for enrollment.

Cornerstone students already are involved with Deloitte through its existing internship program.
