About Academic Talent Search

About This Community Partnership

Academic Talent Search (ATS) has offered classes on the Sacramento State campus since 1982. Over the past 38 years, more than 47,500 young scholars have gained an early exposure to college life through ATS. Students preview the “college experience” by choosing their own classes in areas that interest them, meet new friends from around Northern California who share their enthusiasm for learning, remain academically engaged over the summer, and begin considering potential majors and career paths.

Parents frequently report that their students leave ATS with renewed academic excitement and greater motivation to attend college in the future.

"ATS is an opportunity for young kids to take classes on a real college campus. They are in real college classrooms and experience some independence on a new level (in a safe environment.) My daughter took it seriously as she felt she was being taken seriously and produced some high quality work in her design class. Getting kids early exposure to higher education is a gift! " – ATS Parent
