Johns Hopkins talent search is your ticket to recommended programs

JHUCTYThis spring, I received a recommendation from a reader of this site for the summer programs run by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth. Unfortunately, when I called CTY for information, they said that their summer programs were open only to kids who had participated in their Talent Search program during the school year.

If you’d like to be eligible for future CTY programs, including academic summer programs held on university campuses across the country, you can enroll now in the 2014-15 Talent Search.

The CTY Talent Search is open to students in grades 2 to 8. It operates much like the Duke TIP talent search you may already be familiar with. (In fact, CTY was the regional talent search program that Duke TIP was modeled after.) Your child will need qualifying scores on a standardized test to enter the program. Once admitted to the CTY talent search, a student is able to take above-grade testing that provides greater insight into his or her academic standing. With qualifying scores on the above-grade testing, a child becomes eligible for CTY’s summer programs and online courses.

Both the talent search program and the above-grade testing have associated fees.
