Open to high school students who have completed the 8th grade.
Classes are offered on weekdays, Monday through Friday, in week-long sessions each summer.
An orientation to welcome students and their families will be held prior to the Summer Academies. Students will turn in their required forms and receive the Summer Academies t-shirt, along with general information about policies and procedures. Refreshments will be served.
The Summer Academies for High School Students introduces teens to new experiences that just may plant an idea, perhaps a college major or a future career. Some students met Sacramento’s mayor, some found themselves in the midst of a simulated hacking incident and others learned multimedia skills and produced their first news videos. There’s nothing else like it in Sacramento!
