SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Applications for the FBI's Teen Academy this summer in San Diego are due Monday, the San Diego Field Office announced Sunday. 
   
The one-day 2016 Teen Academy was scheduled for June 29 and August 17 at the San Diego Field Office headquarters in Sorrento Valley. Any student interested in the FBI, what it does, and how a relationship with the FBI could help his or her school and community was encouraged to apply, according to the statement.
   
The Teen Academy is open to high school sophomores or juniors enrolled in a public, private, charter, or home school program and the applicant must attend school in San Diego or Imperial counties to be eligible to apply.
   
Students selected for the FBI Teen Academy spend an interactive day with special agents and professional staff participating in both classroom and hands-on activities. Classes will offer an insider's look into criminal and cyber investigations and hands-on experience involving evidence collection and tactical operations, all while learning about the FBI's core values, the statement siad.
   
After completing the class, students will be more aware of the challenges their communities face and better understand how the FBI serves its community. Teen Academy graduates were encouraged to mentor their peers by sharing the knowledge they will gain through the program.
   
The FBI's Teen Academy application process allows for the identification of a diverse pool of students who are capable of leadership and have an interest in the FBI. An essay is required of all applicants and will be the first element of the application package that will be reviewed and provide an
insight into the student's motivations for attending.
   
Applicants should highlight the student's school activities and community involvement, which will be an important part of the criteria used to evaluate the applicants, agents said. Applications, supporting essay, and release form must be received at the FBI San Diego field office by 4 p.m. On Monday, April 18, 2016.
