A special opportunity for international CTY students interested in U.S. university study.
Gifted students often have interests and abilities in multiple areas and a variety of opportunities to choose from – including where to pursue university studies. This program offers international students insights into the diverse US university options. Families will be guided through several university campuses and activities to help students better understand their own priorities in choosing where to apply and how to differentiate themselves in the admissions process. The program also connects you to other CTY families going through the same explorations.
This six-day/five-night program is designed specifically to guide CTY international students and their families through the U.S. university undergraduate admissions process—from identifying schools that match students’ interests and goals, to learning about universities’ international application procedures, to preparing strong college applications.
The program begins with a workshop designed especially for CTY families. The workshop will include an open forum exploring the university journey of international students and exercises to help students understand their unique strengths and interests, and identify what type of school may be a good fit. Throughout the five days, families will visit a variety of U.S. universities and have the opportunity to connect with admissions representatives, counselors, international student advisors, and current students. Take advantage of this opportunity to understand the diverse academic options in the United States, hear from people who best understand the challenges for talented international students, and refine your search for the appropriate school for you.
