Work with Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth

Public, private, independent, and charter schools work with Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth's (CTY) Online Programs to expand opportunities for their academically gifted students by bringing CTY's challenging distance education courses to the school setting. This collaboration allows gifted students to take advanced courses in subjects such as math, science, writing, grammar, critical reading, Chinese, Arabic, and Spanish languages, and computer science. Online Programs students also may take advanced placement courses that may not be offered in the student's school.

Schools rely on CTY's exceptionally high standards for rigorous courses, teaching excellence, and student performance. In addition, the program offers special benefits to both schools and students:

Benefits to Schools

  • Supports curriculum differentiation
  • Cost-effective
  • Assists school teaching staff in meeting the needs of all students

Benefits to Students

  • Meaningful instructor feedback on completed work – not just "A+ Great Job!"
  • Provides challenging courses
  • Avoids schedule disruptions
  • Reduces grade skipping
  • Allows students to progress at their own pace

Online Programs students often work on their courses during the school day, using the computer lab or media center, communicating with their Online Programs instructors via email, interactive virtual classrooms, or by phone. Many challenging Online Programs courses are used to replace the school's regular course; other courses are offered for enrichment. Review the Catalog.
