Join the Study for Exceptional Talent (SET)

Students who qualify for SET through CTY’s Talent Search are sent an invitation to join SET once CTY receives official notification of their SAT scores. Students who test through another Talent Search or on their own should send their scores to SET and an invitation will be sent once those scores are received. If we have an email address, an e-invitation will be issued. If not, an invitation will be sent by postal mail.

The invitation is accompanied by SET registration forms that must be completed and returned. These include questionnaires that provide background information about the student and parents, as well as a consent form that must be signed by both the SET student and a parent. Once we receive a student's completed registration materials, a SET Welcome Packet will be sent, including sample copies of Imagine and the SET Precollege Newsletter. As a SET member, the student is eligible for all of SET’s services

These services are free-of-charge to qualified students who join SET. However, we welcome donations from individuals who value our services and support our mission.
