Global Issues Catalog and Resources

As citizens living in the 21st century, we face numerous challenges and opportunities. In an increasingly interconnected world, choices we make locally have significant global implications. CTY's program for tenth through twelfth graders focuses on key global issues in the 21st century.

By bringing together academically talented students from all over the country to wrestle with major issues facing the world today, our summer programs are able to offer an unusual educational experience, one geared both to the students' high abilities and to their need for peers who share their academic abilities and their love of learning. Princeton University and the Center for Talented Youth's Global Issues Program at Berkeley are two of the premier educational institutions in the United States, offering outstanding settings for this program. As you read through this catalog, you will learn more about what we have to offer and how our courses can help highly able students explore their potential to the fullest.
