CTY offers fun and challenging learning opportunities for bright students in elementary, middle, and high school.


High school students can gain eligibility for CTY programs by achieving a qualifying score on the Advanced SCAT, Online SCAT, STB, ACT, SAT®, PSAT™ 8/9 or PSAT 10/NMSQT®. Students in grades 9-12 should register directly with the testing agency to take the ACT, SAT, PSAT 8/9 or PSAT 10/NMSQT, or register via MyCTY to take the SCAT or STB.

Qualifying scores on any of the above tests can be uploaded along with your child’s summer or online program application.

Select courses do not require minimum test scores.
