Youth Programs

We have created fun and engaging learning experiences that will give students the opportunity to: 

  • Explore educational and career opportunities in various fields
  • Discover new academic and creative challenges in topics not always available in regular school
  • Work with other students on real-world projects
  • Get a preview of college 
  • Learn from Sacramento State professors, community college faculty, area public and private school teachers and industry professionals

Programs Offered 

There are two programs offered for different age ranges, as follows:

  • Academic Enrichment: incoming 7th-10th graders will have the opportunity to explore a variety of subjects through the ATS curriculum, preview the college experience and get motivated for the next school year.
  • Summer Academies: incoming 9th-12th graders and graduating high school seniors can preview different career paths and college majors.
