Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Honors Westminster Students

Posted on Jun 04, 2014

Westminster School would like to congratulate Kamryn Olds (8th grade), Ejun Kim (7th grade), Anne Nguyen (7th grade), and Kyle Joe (6th grade) for their achievements on the 2013 Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth Talent Search!

The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) is a non-profit affiliated with the university, which was designed to support and recognize academic achievement by grade school students. In promoting talent among young people, CTY helps to fulfill Johns Hopkins’ mission to prepare students to make significant contributions to the world.

Kamryn, Ejun, Anne, and Kyle were among more than 38,000 students from over 120 countries who participated in the most recent CTY Talent Search. The CTY Talent Search awards go to 2nd to 8th graders who achieved exceptional performance on above-grade-level tests such as the SCAT, SAT, and ACT.  After completion of the exam, only 30% of participants earned an invitation to the CTY Awards Ceremony—so the Westminster students’ achievements are no small feat!

After receiving high marks on the exams, students have access to summer and online courses at CTY.  Past participants in the CTY Search have gone on to co-found Google and Facebook, enter the Intel Science Competition, and become Rhodes Scholars.

Once again, we would like to congratulate Kamryn, Ejun, Anne, and Kyle on their academic excellence and continued exhibition of Westminster values and education!
