• Johns Hopkins:
    Center for Talented Youth -Talent Search 

    The John's Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) searches for 7th and 8th grade students each year who excel in Math, Reading, and Writing.
    • RDMS will identify students who scored in the Advanced Proficient category in either Mathematics or Language Arts using previous NJ ASK scores (PARCC scores are not available yet). These students will be invited to take the SAT, ACT, SCAT, or STB. Parents may also nominate their child for one of these tests if they feel that their child is a strong candidate to take a college entrance exam.
    • In early October, the RDMS Guidance Department will mail a letter home to all students.  The letter will contain detailed information about the John's Hopkins CTY program. The letter will be posted on our website at that time.     
    • There are 2 fees involved: one for Johns Hopkins CTY, and one to register for the SAT, ACT, SCAT, or STB.
    • Students who fit this criteria need to fill out the Johns Hopkin's application, which is available in the RDMS Guidance Office or at www.cty.jhu.edu
