Summer Academies provide high school students with the unique opportunity to explore various career paths during one-week, specialized courses while being introduced to the college experience.
Explore educational and career opportunities in various fields
Collaborate with other students on real-world projects
Become immersed in the college campus experience
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 will be held the week prior to Summer Academies. Each student will receive the Summer Academies t-shirt and general information about policies and procedures. Students will turn in required forms at this time. Refreshments will be served.
The Summer Academies for High School Students has wrapped up for another year with our 12 academies giving teens the kinds of experiences that may have planted a seed, perhaps a college major or a future career. Some students met the chief justice of the California Supreme Court and Sacramento’s mayor, some found themselves in the midst of a simulated hacking incident and other students learned multimedia skills and produced their first news videos.
