Call the set $S$. Denote this accumulation point as $p \not\in S$. Every neighborhood around $p$ contains a point of $S$ (because it's an accumulation point of $S$) and a point not in $S$ (namely, itself).
Therefore, $p$ is in the boundary of $S$. QED.
Of course, your proof will look different depending on the version of 'boundary' you're using. I was using the third definition here.
