We accept qualifying scores on a variety of tests your child may have already taken for talent identification at their school. Scores in the 98th percentile, on an accepted test taken July 1, 2017, or later, will be accepted for CTY-level eligibility.

Students who qualify based on existing test scores will remain eligible until they age out after grade 12.  

If you wish to qualify for CTY using scores from one of our accepted tests, you should first join CTY. Once you’ve joined, you can select an online or on-campus summer course and fill out a CTY program application.

The application will prompt you to upload a copy of your child’s score report for the selected test. We will accept a copy of the official score report from the school or test provider. The score report must include the student’s name and test date. 

We will review and email you within 7-10 business days with information about your child’s eligibility and course enrollment.   

You may also note that select courses do not require minimum test scores.
