Center for Talented Youth
In 2016 the Foundation continued its support for the Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Greece, which organises summer courses, distance learning, weekend courses and other educational activities, all at the Anatolia College campus. The aim is to enhance academic excellence, identify gifted and talented students and support their development.
Participants accelerate, enrich and expand their knowledge in various fields such as Philosophy, Microeconomics, International Relations, Art and Science of the Cinema, Mathematical Modelling, Design Principles for Engineers, Biomedical Sciences, Probability and Game Theory, Genetics, Computer Science, Cryptology, Robotics, etc. Through the courses participants are given the opportunity to address a wide range of academic challenges with the help of highly qualified teachers and their peers. The programmes offered are aimed at pupils from the third class of primary school to the second year of senior high school.
