CTY for PreK-1st Graders

Gifted Education for PreK-1

The challenge

Advanced abilities can shine early. Many talented children in early grades can be helped by parents and teachers who enrich the child’s life at home and school. Some young children may have the advanced capabilities to do even more. 

The answer

In special cases, parents of children in pre-k through grade 1 may find The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth to be a good match for a young child’s advanced abilities. CTY provides testing, course work, and other resources geared for students of great academic promise.

CTYOnline offers a number of different math courses for prek-1 students with qualifying scores.

Eligibility requirements

Students can become eligible to enroll in CTYOnline courses by submitting alternative test results that demonstrate high academic potential, such as the WISC, WPSSI and Stanford-Binet. For more details, view CTYOnline Eligibility.
