Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Prep

Our CTY Prep course is designed for 7th and 8th graders, who seek eligibility for Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Talented Youth, by earning an advanced qualifying score on the December SAT.

CTY is a nonprofit organization providing vital programs and resources for the development of their most gifted students. Their most well-known program is their Summer Program, bringing together academically exceptional children for an intensive three-week academic and social experience.

To qualify for CTY, students must earn a qualifying score for their grade level on the SAT, ACT, SCAT, or STB standardized tests.

Qualifying scores are the following:

• 7th grade: 520 SAT score on each section,
reflecting ability 4 grade levels above current grade

• 8th grade: 570 SAT score on each section,
reflecting ability 4 grade levels above current grade

TOOLS FOR STUDENT SUCCESS

MEK Review equips students with the right tools to take big leaps in their SAT scores. Our teachers guide them with expert instruction, key materials, and a strategic approach to hitting target scores.

Simulation Tests

We monitor student progress and build up test-taking skills through full-length, professional College Board tests that simulate test-day environments.

Expert Strategies

Our expert teachers teach students how to strategically tackle the test, helping them to recognize and prioritize question types, among other savvy approaches.

Detailed Error Analysis Reports

We offer detailed score reports that analyze student performance data after each practice test, a powerful tool that pinpoints areas of weaknesses and improvement.

Constant Guidance and Communication

We teach students to take ownership of their progress through regular monitoring and persistent communications on improvements, weaknesses, and mindset.

Quizzes, Drills and Homework

Students receive benchmarks (mini-tests), skill drills, quizzes, and other key assignments to intimately learn SAT exam content and monitor their short-term progress.

Mindset Building

For many middle-schoolers, this is their first experience with a high-pressure standardized test. We teach them how handle the pressure, be mentally tough, and avoid silly mistakes.

Schedule

Our CTY Prep group course starts in September in preparation for the December SAT. Official start and end dates will be announced in Summer 2020. To maximize results, we strongly recommend that students begin on the start date.
