Johns Hopkins honors IOP student

  • Sunday, June 1, 2014

Jane Ann Johnson, a student from Isle of Palms, was recently honored as one of the brightest young students in the nation at a regional awards ceremony for academically advanced children sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY).

The center honored Jane Ann, a participant in the CTY Talent Search, for her exceptional performance on a rigorous, above-grade-level test given to academically talented second- through eighth-grade students.

As part of the CTY Talent Search, which is going on now, advanced young learners take above-grade-level tests that CTY has used for years to spot academic talent and reveal gaps between a child's academic program and his or her actual capacity for learning.

Seventh- and eighth-graders take the SAT or ACT – the same tests used for college admissions.

These students, along with second- through sixth-graders, can take the School and College Ability Test (SCAT), an above-level test.

Jane Ann, a student at Sullivan's Island Elementary School, was one of more than 38,000 students from over 120 countries who participated in the CTY Talent Search.

Because of the difficulty of the tests, only about 30 percent of students who participated earned an invitation to a CTY awards ceremony where they are individually honored for their academic performance and potential.

Most students honored in 2014 CTY Awards Ceremonies also qualified academically for CTY's summer courses as well as online classes.
