College, Careers & ‘Stingers Up!’

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!

Summer Session


2019 Sessions
First 6-week session (6W1): May 28 – July 5
Second 6-week session (6W2): July 8 – August 16
Full 12-week session (12W): May 28 – August 16 

Summer Session offers Sac State and visiting students the opportunity to take classes over the summer during two 6-week sessions and one 12-week session.

The short sessions allow students the flexibility to complete graduation requirements and advance toward degree goals while pursuing other interests over the summer.
