Ayana R. (Grade 7) - Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Talent Search

Seventh grader Ayana R. was awarded High Honors for being among the highest scoring students in the 2016-17 Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Talent Search. As part of the CTY Talent Search, advanced students in second through eighth grade take challenging tests that can reveal their true capacity for learning. Seventh and eighth graders take the SAT or ACT, the same tests used for college admission. These students may also take advanced versions of the School and College Ability Test (SCAT) or the Spatial Test Battery (STB). Ayana was one of over 27,000 students from more than 65 countries who participated in the 2016-17 Talent Search, with only about 25 percent of the participants earning the High Honors designation. Congratulations to Ayana on her outstanding achievement!
