A Wesleyan School 8th grader was honored by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) yesterday at an international awards ceremony.
Andy Yang, an Alpharetta resident, received a perfect SAT math score, an 800, when he took the college entrance test as only a seventh grader.
The Center honored Andy for his exceptional performance as a middle school student on the college SAT test as part of the annual CTY Talent Search. CTY uses above-grade-level tests, like the college SAT and ACT, because they provide a clear picture of advanced students true academic abilities.
Andy was also invited to join CTY's Study of Exceptional Talent (SET), a select group of profoundly gifted students worldwide.
Wesleyan School, located in Gwinnett County, is a K-12 Christian college preparatory school. Wesleyan is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Southern Association of Independent Schools.
