The JHU CTY Talent Search

“The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) identifies and develops the talents of the most advanced K-12 learners worldwide. As part of Johns Hopkins University, CTY helps fulfill the university’s mission of preparing students to make significant future contributions to our world”.

The JHU CTY Talent Search for grades 2 – 8 is the gateway to the various CTY’s highly regarded summer programs, online courses, and other services and resources designed for advanced young learners. It is also a tool that helps the academically gifted students to receive well deserved public recognition. All students who accept the challenge of taking the Talent Search test receive a Certificate of Participation. Top Talent Search students attend award ceremonies in 14 states and the very top students can attend a national medal ceremony at Johns Hopkins University.

CTY recommends the Talent Search for students who exhibit outstanding academic talent based on the following criteria:

In order to participate in the Talent Search a student should complete and submit a Talent Search application to the CTY and take an above-grade-level-test that provides specific information about a child’s reasoning abilities. To qualify for the program, students in grades 2-5 are required to take the SCAT test. Students in grades 5-6 can choose between SCAT or STB. While both SCAT and STB are also available for the older students, the CTY primary tests for students in grades seven and eight are the SAT or the ACT. Both tests objectively measure the reading and mathematical abilities that a student has developed within and outside of the school. The SAT is administered by the College Board. The ACT is administered by the company of the same name. Both tests generally taken by the college-bound high school juniors and seniors and are scheduled at the local schools on the specific national administration days. Students who test and earn eligible scores before February 1 enjoy a wider range of Summer Programs course options and have a better chance of receiving Summer Programs financial aid.
