About Us

Destination College Advising Corps


In 2007 UC Berkeley DCAC was launched as one of the original (National) College Advising Corps chapters funded by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation. DCAC began with two Advisers in two high schools in Solano county. Today, DCAC provides college access and preparation services to over 40,000 high school students in districts throughout California.

Solano County Educational Consortium


In December, 2007 the California Student Aid Commission funded an effort to re-establish Cal-SOAP consortium services in Solano County.  The Solano County Educational Consortium (SCEC) was established by a partnership with Solano County school districts, community-based organizations, and local colleges and universities to help Solano County youth pursue and prepare for college.

In the Fall of 2008, Cal-SOAP funding came through the federal College Access Challenge Grant Program and the East Bay Consortium (EBC) took over the fiscal sponsorship of the SCEC program and Cal-SOAP services in Solano County.

Through the support of these partnerships, SCEC professional and undergraduate student staff are able to provide services and bring our partner resources to Solano County students, families and schools.  SCEC reaches over 2,000 students annually at 12 different schools in Solano County.

SCEC staff will help Solano students realize their college dreams and increase academic engagement across students, families, and community members.

Academic Talent Development Program UC Berkeley

Catalog information and application forms are available at the ATDP website.


UC Berkeley's Academic Talent Development Program (ATDP) invites highly motivated young scholars to apply to its 2016 Summer Session of challenging courses.


When selecting students for acceptance, ATDP considers indicators of academic talent, including a student's report card, standardized test scores, an essay, and a teacher recommendation. ATDP carefully carefully chooses its faculty members from a pool of university, public school, and private school instructors. In addition to their demonstrated excellence in the classroom, our instructors share a commitment to the education of gifted and talented youth.
