Center for Talented Youth Testing at UNIS Hanoi

About the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth

Recently representatives from Johns Hopkins University presented to parents about their Center For Talented Youth (CTY) programme. As part of the Johns Hopkins University, CTY conducts the oldest and most extensive university-based Talent Search worldwide. For qualified academically advanced students, CTY offers challenging summer, online courses, and family academic programmes.

Talent Search

To be able to participate in the CTY programme, students will register with the CTY Talent Search. Participating in CTY’s Talent Search is an achievement in itself. Receiving a qualifying score allows your child to participate in CTY’s engaging summer and online programmes. Test options vary by grade level. One test that is accepted is the School and College Ability Test.
