On Saturday, December 16, 25 BEAM students took the admissions test for the Center for Talented Youth (CTY). CTY offers students three-week summer programs in math, science, English, and humanities, provided they score well either the math or verbal section of an admissions exam (the SCAT).
This week, we found out that a 18 students passed the test, qualifying to take either math or verbal courses, or both! Next summer, they could take courses ranging from Discrete Math to Astronomy to Philosophy. CTY's summer programs normally cost about $4000, but their exemplary financial aid means that the median BEAM student pays only $100 to attend.
Congratulations to Jordan, Mariwa, Consuelo, Awa, Yeramis, Mohamed, Anthony, Noe, Emyr and 9 other students who have opened a door to the next opportunity! We are so proud of you all.
