CTY deadline nears for testing second- to eighth-grade students

Monday, Nov. 30, is the fall deadline for families to enroll a bright second- to eighth-grade student in the annual Talent Search sponsored by Johns Hopkins’ Center for Talented Youth. Testing done through CTY lets families see a child’s math and verbal talents and also can qualify a child for CTY’s summer or online courses for academically talented young people.

CTY’s local three-week lineup for summer 2010 includes day programs in Brooklandville and Sandy Spring, Md., for students completing grades two to six, and a residential program at Homewood for students completing grades seven to 10. Tuition remission is possible, depending on unit policies. For more information, call 410-735-6278, e-mail or go to
