TALENT SEARCHES & TAKING SAT/ACT EARLY

Class Introduction:

Students who score in the 95th percentile or higher on national tests or score Advanced on the Standards Based Assessment, can apply for the Johns Hopkins CTY Talent Search. For more information on their summer programs and enrichment activities go to ctyinfo@jhu.edu. Belin Blank is another program that offers similar opportunities.

Many Romig Middle School students also qualify to take the SAT &/or ACT early. Students typically apply for a talent search program and sign-up for either the ACT or SAT through them. Some families bypass the talent search programs and sign-up for testing on Collegeboard.com. Depending on your child's age, you might need to request a paper application. The benefit of taking college placement tests in 7th and 8th grade is that it gives your child the experience of taking the test in the real-world test setting without it counting against your child.
