Eligibility for CTY Study of Exceptional Talent (SET)

Students qualify for SET by taking the SAT before age 13 and scoring at least 700 on either the Math or Verbal (Critical Reading or Evidence-Based Reading and Writing) test. Students who take the SAT after their 13th birthday may qualify for SET by scoring an additional 10 points above 700 for each month after their 13th birthday.

Students who qualify are invited to join SET once CTY receives official notification of their SAT scores.

Taking the SAT

Students may qualify for SET by taking the SAT through CTY's Talent Search, through another Talent Search, or on their own.
