UC Berkeley ATDP (Academic Talent Development Program)

Post date: Jan 15, 2015 7:41:02 AM

ATDP’s Secondary Division, administered through UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Education, offers challenging courses to highly motivated students who have completed Grades 7-11 (and are entering Grades 8-12). Students are invited to attend the program on the basis of exceptional academic talent.

Classes are held in buildings across the UC Berkeley campus, with many scheduled at the Graduate School of Education’s Tolman Hall in the northwest corner of campus.

ATDP’s course offerings cover a wide variety of disciplines. Instruction is fast-paced, and expectations are high—each six-week course is designed either to cover a semester’s worth (5 units, or 7.5 school days per class session) or a year’s worth (10 units, or 10 school days per class session) of material. The number of hours of homework per ATDP class session is commensurate with the number of school days that the class covers and is provided below each course description.

ATDP is committed to supporting gender, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity in all of its programs.
