John Hopkins Talented Youth
John Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth Congratulations! SJGS is proud to announce that this past Wednesday 133 students or 25.5 % of those tested went home with letters stating that they qualified for the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) based on the Terra Nova Scores from last March. To qualify for the Talent Search, a student must score in the 95th percentile or higher on a reasoning section of a nationally-named test or have state test results categorized at the highest levels of performance (such as advanced, distinguished, exceeds, or honors). Acceptable types of tests or subtests include those that look for reasoning. In the verbal category subtests include reading, reading composite, vocabulary, context and analogies. Math subtests include math composite, math quantitative and sequencing. Students can also qualify through the total score and in the science and social studies section. CTY is a leading national center for academically advanced K-12 learners. CTY identifies advanced academic talent in young people and then develops that talent so students maintain high academic standards for themselves throughout their school years. Participation in CTY can open up new resources and a new peer network for academically minded young people worldwide.

John Hopkins CTY Honors SJGS as Top School
We’d like to share some good news with you. Saint Joseph Grade School is a “Top School” for the state of New Jersey in the 2009 Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth Talent Search.
