Founded in 1979, the CTY Talent Search is a program offered through Johns Hopkins University that identifies, assesses, and recognizes the academic talents of young people across the country and around the world. Students in grades 2 through 8 qualify for the CTY Talent Search by meeting the following academic criteria:
Students who meet such criteria are then invited to participate in the CTY Talent Search. Benefits of this program include:
Students who participate in the CTY Talent Search will take a nationally normed test, at a level above their current school grade level. This test will provide specific information about the student's academic abilities, as well as compare that student to all others who took the same test in the same year.
Students test according to their choice of one of the following scenarios:
|Test Name||For Students
|ACT||7-8||Test locations||Paper and pencil|
The tests vary in length. The shortest test is the SCAT test; the longest test is the SAT and ACT. The tests also vary in content, locations, and test dates. Most students in grades 7 and 8 take either the SAT or the ACT. The SAT and ACT are standardized, nationally recognized tests administered throughout the US under controlled, timed conditions. The SAT and ACT both objectively measure the reading and mathematical abilities that a student has developed both in and out of school. The SAT is administered by the College Board, Princeton, NJ. The ACT is administered by ACT, Iowa City, IA. To determine which test is best suited, or locally available, for your child, speak to his or her guidance counselor.
After testing is completed, you will receive a copy of test results and guidance materials to help understand what your child's test scores mean and how to use them for planning your child's future education.
