Have a kid who loves to learn? The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth is now accepting applications for its 2020 Summer Programs, which will be held at two dozen sites, including Johns Hopkins University and the Gilman School in Baltimore.

At CTY, bright elementary, middle, and high school students can get ahead in their studies while exploring a topic they love and meeting other kids who share their interests. Options include one-week day programs for students in grades two to four, three-week day programs for students in grades two to six, and three-week residential programs for students in grades five to 12. Fun and challenging course options this summer include Astrophysics, Fiction and Poetry, Marine Ecology, the Sensory Brain, Electrical Engineering, Number Theory, the Global Environment, and more.

Bright students also can take online courses with CTY year-round. More than 170 courses are offered in flexible formats and guided by expert instructors who specialize in teaching advanced concepts to bright students.

Students can become eligible for CTY's summer and online programs by participating in CTY's Talent Search, through which they take an above-grade-level test to determine their academic abilities.

JHU's tuition-remission benefit covers 50% of the tuition costs for JHU employees whose dependent children attend CTY's summer and online programs. CTY programs fill quickly, so act soon to take advantage of this opportunity.
