Summer Classes: 6th - 9th Grade Students

Experience a collegiate environment while learning from university professors, area public and private school instructors, and leading industry professionals in ATS' 6th-9th grade program. Students gain self-confidence and independence while being treated like "college students" on the Sacramento State campus. Courses allow students to accelerate their learning in traditional subjects like English, mathematics, and foreign languages or to discover new academic and creative challenges in areas not often available in regular school (for example, game programming, criminal law, neuroscience, and astrobiology).

The schedule for 6th - 9th graders is similar to a college schedule with many classes meeting two or three days a week for 2 to 3 hours each class day. One-, three-, and five-week sessions are available between mid-June and late July.  Course fees range from $150 to $455 depending on the length of the course:

10 hour short course $150
Standard 1- or 3- week course $365
Accelerated 5-week course $455
