CTY: Intensive Studies for 7th Graders and Above


CTY’s Intensive Studies is designed for students who are ready for intense college-level course work and accelerated study in specific disciplines. These three-week courses engage students in the same amount of material that would normally be covered in a semester-long college course or a year-long high-school course. CTY’s Intensive Studies courses fall into two categories: special topics courses that are not offered in high school and fast-paced high school courses. Intensive Studies courses explore more sophisticated theoretical material and proceed at a faster pace than do courses in the Academic Explorations program. A number of CTY’s Intensive Studies courses also have prerequisites. Students who thrive within such a focused setting strengthen their critical and analytical thinking skills and have the opportunity to acquire specialized knowledge in their chosen fields of study.
