The College of Continuing Education (CCE) is honoring its commitment to the community and youth programs by offering a select number of online courses in Summer 2021.

We’re happy to announce that scholarship vouchers will reduce the cost of Summer 2021 classes for all students. See the course schedule for current pricing information. Registration will begin April 1, 2021.


ATS’ Summer 2021 lineup includes a select number of courses for students entering 7th-10th grades. Classes will be offered in computer science, English, mathematics, science and social science. Due to COVID-19, all sessions will be held online this summer.

“I’m excited to use my on-line teaching experiences to still work with ATS students this summer!”
