2020 Catalog: Academic Explorations, Grades 7+

View the open course list

CTY’s Academic Explorations are enrichment courses that provide students an introduction to topics not typically included in the standard middle or high school curriculum. These courses are designed to help students develop analytical and critical thinking skills while immersing them in a specific discipline for three weeks. 

Courses in the Academic Explorations program are taught at a level equivalent to an advanced high school or introductory college course, and most courses do not have prerequisites or require any prior knowledge of a specific topic.

Please read carefully through each section of the catalog. You will find a wealth of information about our program and answers to many questions you may have. For quick answers to specific questions, review Frequently Asked Questions.
