Alumni and Friends Newsletter
Greetings, CTY alumni, families, volunteers, and friends!
In case you missed it, Bridgette Yee McIntyre, Director of Integrated Programs talked about Planning Your College and Career Path and CTY Executive Director, Dr. Amy Lynne Shelton, shared updates with alumni as we approach the start of summer On-Campus Programs.
Meanwhile, CTY’s On-Campus team continues hiring for our summer sites in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, California, and Rhode Island.
Visit the CTY website to learn more about the dates, positions, responsibilities, salaries, and other important information.
We need your help to share a welcome message for our 3,500 new and returning CTY On-Campus students across our eight sites. Record a brief video message to say ‘good luck/have fun/learn a lot/etc.' Or you can send a photo of yourself with a message to email@example.com. We will compile as many of your messages as we receive into a video to share with our CTYers.

No matter how you slice it, the 2023 Pi Day celebration hit a sweet spot! The generosity of our community bowls us over – 680 alumni, families, friends and staff contributed over $81,000. Funds raised this year will help students currently waitlisted for financial aid and support our always-evolving curriculum, and initiatives for the whole family.
Pi Day may be over, but you can still make a difference for nearly 80 students currently awaiting financial aid assistance.
Make a gift to CTY and help provide a rewarding and challenging academic experience to qualified bright learners from diverse backgrounds who may not be able to attend without financial assistance.
We received heartwarming expressions of gratitude from our CTY students, including the message and artwork below:
“The help of donors brightens my future ahead and is the water and sunlight of my growth as a student.”
The drawing is a village scenery from the student’s country, Bangladesh.
