Registration is open for the Center for Talented Youth's 2024 summer On-Campus Programs, and eligible full-time JHU staff are invited to enroll their child and apply their 50% tuition remission benefit to any CTY course.

This summer, CTY's three-week day and residential programs for students in grades 2 to 12 are coming to 11 campuses across the U.S.: Johns Hopkins University and the Gilman School in Maryland; Dickinson College and Ursinus College in Pennsylvania; Loyola Marymount University, Mirman School, and the University of California, Santa Cruz, in California; Skidmore College and the Speyer School in New York; and Roger Williams University in Rhode Island.

At CTY, academically advanced students participate in rigorous coursework, fun projects, and outdoor activities, while making friends with others who share their interests. Students can dig deep and explore subjects not always found in school, in courses such as Cloudy With a Chance of Science, Epidemiology, Electrical Engineering, Introduction to Astronomy, Marine Ecology, Topology, and Crafting the Essay. Three-week programs begin June 23 and run through Aug. 9. The registration deadline is May 3.

Here are some new CTY offerings coming this summer:

  • Discovery Samplers, which let students build math, science, and writing skills while exploring the three topics over the three-week session.
  • Lots of additions to the course catalog, including Biotechnology; Microeconomics; and Being a Reader, Becoming a Writer.
  • Four commuter programs, including a new site, Mirman School in Los Angeles; and seven residential programs, including at returning sites Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York.
  • A new risk-free refund policy, which gives families flexibility to register now and receive a full tuition refund, minus the application fee, if they cancel their registration before March 1.

Visit CTY's website to learn more and to register. JHU faculty and staff who are interested in learning more about CTY programs are invited to attend a virtual information session at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 6.
