You’re here because you know your child is academically talented. Through an advanced assessment taken by your 2-8 grader or by testing your student in grade 9 and above, CTY will help you discover whether our programs and services are right for your child—and find the appropriate level of challenge to inspire your advanced learner.

We love CTY flag


This is how many students participate in the Talent Search each year.



Love of Learning

For over a decade, CTY Paleobiology instructor Christine Metzger has been showing our students that when you love what you're doing, the line between learning and play is seamless.



That's the number of CTY alumni around the world, including the founders of Facebook and Google, as well as Regeneron Science Talent Search winners, Rhodes Scholars, and MacArthur Fellows.

Happy children
