Gifted & Talented Student Applications

We are selective about the students participating in the EPGY Instructor Guided programs.

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.)
