CTY is experiencing heavy communications and application processing volumes. We appreciate your patience and will respond to queries as quickly as possible.
Students establish eligibility for CTY summer and online programs through testing. CTY is committed to a rigorous approach to assessment so we can provide academically advanced students with the appropriate level of challenge. CTY’s eligibility policy aims to be consistent, transparent, and fair to all students who test.

CTY summer and online courses and programs also have age and grade requirements, and some courses have prerequisites. Eligibility requirements are in two subject area categories: math and science; and writing and humanities. You may be eligible in just one area, or both. Please keep this in mind as you review our courses.
