About the institution

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. The pro­gram gives 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. Cours­es 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.
