Academic Talent Search (ATS) has been offering fun and challenging courses at Sacramento State for 36 years.  This program gives 4th-9th grade students the opportunity to explore new subjects and potential career paths. 

It’s easy for students to participate!  Any student who takes the ATS Qualifying Exam ($15 testing fee per student) is automatically eligible to apply for classes.  This test measures reasoning abilities, so students do not need to study in advance.  ATS offers classes for any score level, and some are open to all students. The test takes about an hour and there is no pass or fail - no stress!

ATS is a non-profit program that offers 4th-9th grade students (grade level as of Jan. 1, 2018) exciting, interesting classes designed to accelerate learning in subject areas they enjoy. Each summer, these students have the opportunity to challenge themselves in traditional and non-traditional subjects, meet new friends from other schools, and experience a collegiate environment.

The first step toward participating in ATS is to take the Qualifying Exam. If you are interested in having your child take the ATS Qualifying Exam, please see the dates for your child's school below and submit an online application. 

2018 Test Sign-ups will be accepted until January 31, 2018.
