Description: For students in grades 2 through 12, these summer programs offer eligible students from all over the country and around the world the opportunity to engage in challenging academic work in the company of peers who share their exceptional abilities and love of learning. While the focus is on rigorous academics and learning, the social experience that results from bringing these students together is an integral part of the program. Some programs are offered at colleges and universities throughout the United States and beyond. The programs are typically three weeks long, and students take only one course.

My son participated in the CTY program beginning in 6th grade just "to see how I compare to others". The experience was validating and empowering. By 8th grade, his boredom spurned him to initiate an independent study program for mathematics. He completed two years of public school math in six months by taking CTY Distance Education courses. The experience was excellent and he felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment upon completion. We were ever so grateful to have this option readily available to him.
