Stuart Country Day School, Princeton, eighth-grade student Isabel Navarro was recently honored at a special academic awards ceremony at Drew University.
Awards were given to NJ elementary and middle school students who distinguished themselves through special testing among the most academically gifted young students in the country. These exceptional children earned their opportunity for recognition by participating in the academic talent search organized by The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (www.cty.jhu.edu).
“We’re so pleased for Isabel,” said Dr. Patty L. Fagin, Head of Stuart Country Day School. “Stuart inspires students through a vigorous learning environment, and encourages a desire to make a difference in the world. Isabel Navarro is an amazing young woman well on her way to success, as this award from Johns Hopkins proves.”
Since 1979, The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) has sought the most academically able elementary and middle school students each year and encouraged their enrollment in CTY’s annual talent search. Students enrolled in the talent search go on to test through the fall and spring.
"With our annual award ceremonies, we're committed to giving these exceptional young people a stage on which to recognize their academic achievements, just as we celebrate achievements in athletics or the performing arts," said CTY executive director, Lea Ybarra. "These students possess an academic fearlessness and intellectual ability that will benefit their entire generation."
Now in its third decade of service, CTY identifies America’s top students in grades two through eight, and provides programs, services, and resources to help them make the most of their advanced academic abilities.[[In-content Ad]]
