Gifted & Talented Student Applications

EPGY - A Selective Opportunity

We are selective about the students participating in the EPGY Instructor Guided programs. Each student wishing to participate in Instructor Guided Courses must successfully complete the application process. Those selected will be notified when their instructor has been assigned. Please follow this process carefully to ensure your application can be processed in a timely fashion.

Admission Requirements

Students must demonstrate a high degree of mathematical or verbal ability (depending on the courses they are applying for) on the basis of standardized testing. All standardized tests must have been taken within two years of the date of the application. Achievement and aptitude tests other than those specifically listed below may be accepted as qualifying tests pending approval of the Admissions Committee. (A guide to the abbreviations used here for the names of standardized tests is provided at the end.)

  2. Provide supporting materials. Acceptable test scores can be found in the Materials Required section. Students ages 7 to 13 taking a math, physics or computer programming course, must take the online EPGY mathematical aptitude test. You will receive instructions by email on how to take the test.
  3. Receive student number. You will receive your Student Number. This number serves as your unique identifier. If you do not receive it following your application, it will be emailed to you within 24 hours of submitting your online application.
  4. Register. Once you receive your student number you may complete the online registration form for the course(s) that you wish to take. Payment can be made online, or you may download a paper registration from the website.
  5. Receive course material. Once your registration form and payment have been processed, you will receive confirmation. Your course materials will arrive several days prior to the start of your course. Quarterly English courses only begin at the start of the quarter, regardless of when registration is submitted.

Registration Deadlines

Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, EG20, Language Arts and Writing (LAW)

Self-paced courses start on the first of each month. Registration and payment for self-paced courses are due by the 22nd of the previous month. For example, if you wished to start M0WB on the 1st of June, you should submit your registration by the 22nd of May. If the registration is submitted after this date in May for that June 1st start, a late registration fee of $25 will be applied.
