Academic Talent Search is here!
Exam is March 20th, 2:00pm at Albert Einstein!

Students from Albert Einstein Middle School are invited to participate in Sacramento State’s Academic Talent Search (ATS) Program!  ATS provides 4th through 9th graders (grade level as of January 1st, 2019) with over 100 fun, interactive, and unique summer courses in a collegiate environment.  Courses cover traditional subjects as well as new and creative topics not always available in regular school.

In the past 37 years, more than 46,500 students have participated in ATS, and last year, ATS granted over $22,000 in financial aid scholarships and testing fee waivers to students.  ATS is a self-supporting, non-profit program that receives no University, state, or federal funding.

ATS summer courses are specifically designed for two age groups: grades 4 and 5 and grades 6 through 9 (4th graders will not be in classes with 9th graders). Current 6th through 9th graders can accelerate their learning in traditional subjects and discover college majors and potential career paths as they gain self-confidence and independence in a university environment.  ATS students have access to university facilities like the library, student union, and campus eateries!

To join in on this fun and unique opportunity, students simply take a short exam that automatically qualifies them for the program. NO test preparation is required since it is not a pass or fail exam. Albert Einstein Middle School will be offering the ATS Exam on March 20th at 2:00pm.  For more information about signing up to take the test, contact Judy O’Sullivan at 916 395-5310 ext 400036 or
