Johns Hopkins CTY

Programs for 8th grade Students

2016-2017 Talent Search sponsored by Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY)

CTY’s summer, online, and family programs are a great fit for highly motivated students who are ready to explore their interests more deeply, challenge themselves academically, and connect with other bright kids who love to learn.

The first step in joining this worldwide community of learners is the CTY Talent Search. Students take an above-grade-level test, which provides insight into their true academic abilities; students who earn qualifying scores on the test are invited to participate in CTY programs and award ceremonies. Financial aid is available for students with a demonstrated need.
