Peri’s exceptional performance

It follows Peri’s outstanding success on the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) and the American College Testing (ACT). These are the tests that colleges employ to assess whether or not a student should be admitted. Several colleges in the United States utilize these examinations as a criterion for admitting students.


These examinations were part of the CTY (Center for Talented Youth Talent) Search at Johns Hopkins University.

Peri, who is currently a student at Thelma L Sandmeier Elementary School in New Jersey, was recognized for her outstanding performance on the evaluation.

In the 2020-21 Talent Search year, she was one of over 19,000 students from 84 countries that participated in CTY.

Above-grade-level testing is used by CTY to identify advanced students from all over the world and to provide a clear picture of their genuine academic skills.

What makes this achievement even more remarkable is that her verbal and quantitative scores were in the 90th percentile of advanced Grade 8 students.

She was selected for the “High Honors Awards” at Johns Hopkins CTY. 

Peri remarked, “This drives me to do more,” and that doodling and reading J R R Tolkien’s works may have helped her.

Johns Hopkins policy prohibits granular data from being split down by age or race. The guardian is also responsible for revealing the prodigy’s name. The awardees come from all 50 states in the US.

Only over 20% of CTY Talent Search competitors received CTY High Honours Awards. Honorees were also eligible for CTY’s online and summer programs, which connect talented students from all over the world and help them become a community of engaged learners.
