UC Berkeley's Academic Talent Development Program (ATDP) : 2017 Dates are Now Available
UC Berkeley’s Academic Talent Development Program (ATDP) offers challenging summer classes for high achieving and motivated young scholars. Since 1982, the program has invited excelling students from the Bay Area and around the world into a unique academic community. We look for strong students from all backgrounds who are hardworking, enjoy learning, and are prepared for an intellectually stimulating and demanding summer class.
At ATDP, we focus on developing talent rather than searching for giftedness. Our summer programs give elementary, middle, and high school students the opportunity to pursue their passions and deep interests by accelerating their coursework or taking classes not typically offered during the regular school year. Summer classes are taught by outstanding public school, private school, and university instructors as well as industry professionals who have deep knowledge of their subject areas and are committed to helping students think and understand deeply. We believe gifted education should be a choice for all highly motivated and prepared students. ATDP maintains a financial aid fund to help all qualified applicants attend our summer program, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
