Why is CTYOnline different from other online learning programs, many of which are free or very low cost? A key ingredient is CTY’s faculty. Our faculty are an extraordinary group of teachers with expertise both in the fields that they teach and in their understanding of the needs of academically gifted students. All hold at least a bachelor's degree, and most hold advanced degrees, including a master’s degree or Ph.D. When a gifted student enrolls in a CTYOnline course, a faculty member is assigned by CTY to guide the student through the course, tailoring it to his or her needs, and making sure the student is engaged and makes progress.
