Grades 9-12

Students in high school who are interested in CTY's summer programs or CTY Online Programs courses have the option of taking the School and College Abilities Test (SCAT) and/or the Spatial Test Battery (STB) for program qualification. Interested students may register to take either or both of these tests through the Diagnostic and Counseling Center. SCAT and STB testing are available year round. Students take the tests at Prometric Test Centers, which are located around the world.*
