Response to COVID-19

Community Safety Is CTY's Top Priority
Session 1 Status Update
As the Center for Talented Youth, in close coordination with Johns Hopkins University
leadership, continues to actively monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, we are particularly focused
on the health and well-being of our community. We are following guidance from the best and
most current public health information, as well as the university’s experts in infectious
disease, epidemiology, and emergency preparedness. Based on the information we have
today, and with the health and safety of our students and staff in mind, we have made the
difficult decision to cancel Session 1 of our 2020 Summer Programs, along with all courses at
our Hong Kong sites.
We know the decision to cancel our Session 1 and Hong Kong-based courses may be
disappointing—and we at CTY will greatly miss welcoming students to our sites for this
session. It is something we plan for all year, and seeing your children grow, discover, and
engage with one another is one of the greatest and most rewarding expressions of our

mission. We are confident, however, that this decision is in the best interests of our CTY
community. We want families to know that even if we cannot serve your children in our
Summer Programs, we are eager to work with them in other ways, including via our Online
Programs. We’re also exploring new, virtual ways to support families coping with this
unprecedented situation. Please stay tuned for more information as those offerings are
Deposit Refunds
Families have been alerted via email to options regarding the return of their deposit. Specific
information for Session 1 families with financial aid awards was also communicated via email.
Our adjusted refund policy can be found online, as well.
Session 2
At this time, we are still cautiously planning to operate our Session 2 courses, the earliest of
which begin on July 12. As the situation continues to evolve, we will update families regularly
about the status of Session 2 operations.
