LA PLATA, Md. (May 13, 2010)—Three Charles County public schools William B. Wade Elementary School, and Milton M. Somers and Theodore G. Davis middle schools were named top participants in the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) 2009 program.
These schools were honored for high levels of student participation in the CTY program, which provides programs and services for students with high academic abilities that offer greater academic challenges, interaction with peers and teaching strategies designed for gifted students.
Students are nominated for participation in the CTY program by their teachers for demonstrating superior academic performance and for scoring above the 95th percentile on a nationally standardized aptitude or achievement test, such as the SAT, ACT or the SCAT, known as the School and College Ability Test.
