Before Testing

After enrolling in Talent Search, CTY can help you register for the test that's right for your child in a few easy steps:

1. Select a Test

2. Register to Test

Once you've selected a test, register. You can also pay the test fee online. Assessment vouchers are available for income-eligible students.

Students with disabilities

Students with disabilities can request the special accommodations they'll need to take any Talent Search test:

3. Take the Test

Take your child to the testing center on his or her scheduled day. Make sure they've had a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast, and are mentally and emotionally prepared to walk in with a positive attitude.

A quick note

Because CTY wants to meet students where they are right now, we don't recommend using any test preparation for Talent Search advanced assessments.
