Johns Hopkins Center for Talented YouthFayetteville – Dr. Tonia Bonner, a science teacher at Alger B. Wilkins High School, is serving as an instructor for the John Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) this summer. CTY provides challenging three-week summer programs to academically advanced students from around the world, as well as online and family programs.

Dr. Bonner is teaching Fast-Paced High School Chemistry at CTY’s site at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA., one of 25 CTY Summer Programs sites in the United States and Hong Kong. In the course, students learn the equivalent of one year of high school chemistry in three weeks.

CTY offers more than 100 Summer Programs courses ranging from Ancient Greek and Introduction to the Biomedical Sciences to Advanced Fiction and Principles of Engineering Design. This year, CTY Summer Programs were held from June 26 – July 15 and July 17 – August 5.

Last year, CTY Summer Programs had nearly 10,000 enrollments. In order to qualify to take CTY courses, a student must participate in a talent search by taking and scoring well on such above-grade level tests as the SAT and ACT.

A global leader in gifted education since 1979, CTY is focused on recognizing academic talent in exceptional K-12 students and supporting their growth with courses, services, and resources specifically designed to meet their needs. CTY draws students from 50 states and 81 countries worldwide. In fiscal year 2015, CTY provided more than $5.8 million in financial aid to nearly 7,000 students.

Credit by Demonstrated MasteryThe Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) process allows current high school students to demonstrate mastery of a course’s content, getting credit and a “CDM” indicator on the student’s transcript by taking an assessment and completing an artifact. 

Any parents or students who are interested in CDM should complete the CDM application and return it to the AIG Consultant at their school no later than September 1, 2016.

*CDM also applies to 6-8 students, but only for certain high school courses offered at the school. Applications for middle school are not available until January.
