Qualifying through the testing pilot, which is running February 1, 2021-June 30, 2022, would give your child the option to enroll in CTY-level courses. With the exception of our in-person Intensive Studies Summer Program courses and intensive session-based online AP courses, most online and in-person programs are designed for CTY-level qualifiers.
To apply for a CTY-level course through the pilot, browse our online course options and enroll in a course. While enrolling, the application will prompt you to provide a copy of your child’s score report from one of the tests accepted in the pilot study. Please allow us 3-5 business days for us to review and provide you with a MyCTY account, which will include your child’s qualification details.
These are some reasons for testing through CTY’s Talent Search instead of the pilot study:
- Consideration award recognition (grades 2-8 only)
- May qualify for CTY's grades 7 and above Intensive Studies Summer Programs. We plan to host our in-person Summer Programs in 2022.
- Interest in intensive session-based AP online courses (grades 9-12)
- If your child wants to gain experience with above-grade-level testing.
To test though CTY’s Talent Search, please join CTY.
Please let us know if you have any other questions along the way.
