Response to COVID-19

CTY students

Community Safety is CTY's Top Priority

Summer Programs Status Update

The Center for Talented Youth, in close coordination with Johns Hopkins University leadership, has continued to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic over the last several weeks. During this time, we have been evaluating whether we could safely operate Session 2 of our Summer Programs, factoring in such concerns as the likely need for ongoing social distancing, whether families and staff would be able to travel safely to our sites, and the demand for the nurses we would normally employ at our sites, who are serving in other capacities during this public health crisis. After weighing these issues and with input from the university’s experts in infectious disease, epidemiology, and emergency preparedness, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Session 2 of our 2020 Summer Programs.

We know the decision to cancel Summer Programs may be disappointing, but we are confident that this decision is in the best interests of our CTY community. But in the spirit of being together apart in these unprecedented times, we are actively working on a new summer offering that will bring some of the best-loved elements of our Summer Programs to the digital space. We will be sharing more with you in the very near future. In the meantime, we invite families to explore our Online Programs courses, which offer flexible formats and responsive instructors accustomed to working with advanced learners.
