You’re here because you know your child is academically talented. Through an advanced assessment taken by your 2-8 grader or by testing your student in grade 9 and above, CTY will help you discover whether our programs and services are right for your child—and find the appropriate level of challenge to inspire your advanced learner.Grades 2-8 Grades 9 and above
Mike Martin, CTY instructor & alumnus
“The real purpose of CTY is for students to learn how to educate themselves and to be given the chance to love doing it.”
Benjamin, CTY student
“CTY has helped me grow as a student and a person. Taking CTY courses and working in a lab this summer provided a great bridge between what I already knew about science and what I need to know.”
Margie Loeb, CTY parent
“My child’s participation in CTY has given him a tremendous sense of identity and has connected us to a community of learners and their families. For us, CTY has been a lifeline.”
This is how many students participate in the Talent Search each year.
Love of Learning
For over a decade, CTY Paleobiology instructor Christine Metzger has been showing our students that when you love what you're doing, the line between learning and play is seamless.
That's the number of CTY alumni around the world, including the founders of Facebook and Google, as well as Regeneron Science Talent Search winners, Rhodes Scholars, and MacArthur Fellows.
