The Johns Hopkins University holds a prominent place among the world’s leading research universities. It has never wavered from its commitment to enabling its students and faculty to explore the full range of learning opportunities in multiple fields. Under the direction of President Ronald J. Daniels, the school has increased investment in interdisciplinary cooperation and community responsiveness through its long-range planning.
For close to 40 years, Johns Hopkins has hosted an intensive summer learning experience to provide enrichment to highly gifted elementary, middle, and high school students. Through their experiences at the Center for Talented Youth, students grow academically and socially.
Each three-week program at the center immerses students in a particular subject taught above grade level, and offers low student-to-teacher ratios. Follow-up has shown that participants gain significantly in topic knowledge and ability to achieve higher SAT scores. Meeting other exceptionally gifted young people provides the added benefit of broadening peer groups and instilling greater self-confidence.
In 2017, President Daniels awarded Mr. Goldstein a Certificate of International Leadership and Service, recognizing his sponsorship of Singaporean students at CTY.
