Program Requirements

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.
