LIVE

CTY’s LIVE enrichment courses let you connect with other kids while exploring fascinating topics not often found in school. In these hybrid synchronous/asynchronous courses, you’ll meet once a week (three times a week in the summer) for a real-time session to explore fun lessons and have lively discussions with your classmates and instructor. Throughout each course, you’ll read and complete activities on your own outside of class.

A good fit for students who:

  • Enjoy a lively virtual class setting and are also motivated to work independently
  • Love diving into special-interest topics that spark their curiosity without the pressure of a high-stakes academic setting
  • Enjoy using technology to connect and share ideas with classmates from around the world

Calling all middle- or high-school students who love working in teams to tackle challenges! In these hybrid synchronous/asynchronous courses, you’ll make friends and develop your collaboration, communication, analytical thinking, and project management skills while working in a small group to create feasible solutions to real-world problems. With a skilled teacher acting as your coach to guide you throughout the course, you’ll meet for live sessions and spend time outside of class working with your team to develop a plan and complete projects that lead towards a solution.

A good fit for students who:

  • Love working on creative team projects that have a positive impact on the world
