Additional Information


  • The application asks you to list the zip code you will be travelling from during the summer.  This can be different from your regular address.  Please fill this out carefully as we will use this to determine the best site eligibility and to determine potential travel allowances.
  • CTY hires a small number of staff members into flexible positions.  These staff members may be asked to switch sites (at CTY's expense) or have a flexible teaching, office, or residential assignment during the summer.  If you are interested in a flexible role, please indicate that when asked on the application.
  • CTY is piloting Discovery Sampler courses for three age groups.  Instead of one course in three weeks, students will experience three courses.  Instructors of these courses will teach 3 cohorts of students for a week each during a session instead of 1 cohort for 3 weeks.  If you would like to learn more about these courses please visit: CTY Discovery Samplers Overview: Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (
