Make Summer Count

UC Berkeley's Academic Talent Development Program (ATDP) offers exciting summer courses for highly motivated scholars. Since 1982, students have come to the UC Berkeley campus to pursue computer programming, law, biotechnology, architecture, and much more. Our Secondary Division program provides both accelerated and enrichment courses for students completing Grades 7 through 11 and is held for six weeks at the UC Berkeley campus. Applications open in January and financial aid is available.  

Note from American High:  These courses can not be used for acceleration purposes and will not receive AHS credit.
