About Online Programs

Since 1979 CTY has served the needs of academically advanced students worldwide by providing challenging programs matched to their abilities. CTY's online courses offer eligible students opportunities to accelerate and enrich their learning at home or at school. Students can take advanced math, for example, without having to take a bus to a high school or college and without having to miss other classes at their local school. Online Programs offers academically advanced students in grades pre K-12 challenging academic course work throughout the year. We bring together the best resources for each course, which may include multimedia resources, interactive virtual classrooms, texts, student guides, and CD-ROMs. Each student works with a qualified CTY instructor who provides guidance, feedback, encouragement, and evaluation. CTY Online Programs courses are available year-round.
