Thank you for your interest in CTY. If you have not yet created an account with CTY, you can do so now. Once your application is processed, you can register for testing to gain eligibility for CTY programs. View your test options.


Some testing options are not available at this time due to COVID-19. Students can take the Online School and College Ability Test (SCAT) from home. To take advantage of this opportunity, please follow these steps: 

·       Go to MyCTY and select “Parent” as the account type. You will need your child’s student ID to log in. 

·       Select “Talent Search” in the left navigation bar. 

·       Select “Register to Test.” 

·       Then select “I would like to take the online SCAT.” 

This test will be remotely proctored. To take the test from home, your child will need a desktop or laptop computer that has a webcam and meets other technical requirements. Students cannot take this test on a Chromebook, cell phone, or tablet. 


About 14 days after your child tests, you will receive an email notification that their scores are available in MyCTY. 


CTY is also accepting students’ scores from a variety of tests that students may have already taken at school or for other academic purposes, for a testing pilot study running February 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022. Learn more
