The FBI San Diego Teen Academy takes place in the summer for 10th and 11th grade high school students in San Diego and Imperial counties.
The Teen Academy allows high school students an opportunity to get a comprehensive look into today’s FBI during a six-to-eight-hour block of instruction and demonstrations at the FBI field office in Sorrento Valley. Students will also gain hands-on experience in areas such as crime scene and forensic techniques as well as tactical operations. Students will also engage in candid conversations with FBI staff about online communication and its risks, as well as lifestyle choices required to be eligible for careers at the FBI.
The primary objective is to identify students who are capable of leadership and have an interest in what the FBI does. It is advantageous for a student to have a combination of a good grade point average, well-written essay, school activities, and community involvement.
The San Diego Division will begin accepting applications on March 1. There is no cost to apply or attend.
