“Exciting news! Our eighth- grade daughter is eligible for the Johns Hopkins’ Center for Talented Youth program. Your talented tutors made that a possibility, and, in addition, our student is so much more confident in test-taking. Again, thanks.”
– Parent of eighth grade SSAT/SAT test prep student, Prometheus Tutors.
In the context of special educational programs, the following are frequently recognized indicators of a high-achieving student:
- MCAS – Advanced
- 95th percentile or higher on grade-level, standardized tests, such as ERB (CPT-4), HSPT, ISEE, and SSAT
- Teacher or Principal recommendation
Do you have a high-achieving 5th-10th grade student?
If so, your student may benefit from one of the programs recognized by the National Association for Gifted Children (www.nagc.org). A few of the more selective programs, for example, the Center for Talented Youth, at Johns Hopkins University, (www.cty.jhu.edu), use the SAT or ACT Test as part of their admissions assessment.
