Family Academic Programs offers approximately 90 programs annually to CTY students in grades 2 – 12. We offer one-day, overnight, weekend, and week-long academic programs that seek to create engaging and educational experiences for CTY families. Our host locations–predominantly concentrated in the mid-Atlantic, northeast, and on the west coast–include colleges, universities, research institutions, museums, science and nature centers, and aquariums. All of our programs are tailored to the unique needs of academically-talented students and are offered exclusively to CTY families. Click here if you are not yet a CTY Talent Search participant.
