Summer Focus at UC Berkeley is a comprehensive 6-8 week academic program offered in a partnership between Education Unlimited and UC Berkeley Summer Sessions. The program is designed to provide a small group learning environment for talented and motivated high school students who want to experience college life. While at Focus, students actually earn college credit taking a UC Berkely class.

This exciting program allows entering junior and senior high school students the opportunity to earn college credit, receive a supreme introduction to college and dorm-living, and have a great time on a variety of recreational excursions such as Great America, the SF Museum of Modern Art, college tours and local theaters. Students have fun, meet new people—all the while living in a structured, supervised environment.
