CTY students typically spend 5.5 hours a day, five days a week, in class. Our students enjoy academic challenge, and we design our coursework to engage and inspire them. At residential sites, students do all of their work within the academic day so students may also enjoy the social experience of attending CTY. No homework is assigned. Nonetheless, if students feel overwhelmed, our staff are available to provide support.


Because students at our day sites have less time in class than their residential peers, they are asked to set aside 30 to 60 minutes, five days a week, for homework. Internet access may be required to complete some assignments.
