Photos: 2017 Summer Academies Orientation 

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. 

Channel 31’s “Good Day” featured the 2017 Summer Academies, with reporter Courtney Dempsey (a Sac State alum!) giving the academies a ”Stingers Up!” salute. You can see all the fun in our growing archive of photos and videos, below. Enjoy browsing!
