Testing Event for Potential CTC Students

 Registration due by noon on Tuesday, 10/12/2021   

       CTC Testing Registration Form

There are many inquiries about how students are chosen to attend the Charles Townes Center for highly gifted students, located within Sterling School. The criteria can be found on our website.

Many private schools in our area do not administer nationally normed aptitude tests along with an achievement test. For that reason, on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, there will be an opportunity for students who reside in Greenville County and attend home or private schools to take an aptitude test. If your child has already taken an aptitude test within the past two years, or if his/her school administers this testing it is not necessary for your child to participate. You may just submit those test results to Jane Snyder via email.

Upon reviewing data from this testing event, we will determine if other testing or information is necessary for your child. These results may not be available until after Winter Break.

Please print the Registration Form and send it to Jane Snyder via scan/email or fax: jsnyder@greenville.k12.sc.us or 864-355-9042 by noon on Tuesday, October 12th. Please return a form for each child that you wish to have tested. Students and parents should check in at the front of Sterling School by 9:00am. Unfortunately, due to current restrictions related to COVID-19 parents are unable to wait inside the building; therefore, tours of the building will not occur.

Students will be tested in small grade level groups to allow appropriate distancing. Please have each child bring 2 pencils for testing. Allow two and one-half hours for your child’s testing which includes breaks for them. If you feel that your child needs to have a snack for one of the breaks, please send it in an individually wrapped package. Students should bring a water bottle.

For further information, you may contact Jane Snyder by email at jsnyder@greenville.k12.sc.us (best way to communicate!) or by phone at 355-4821.

Butterfly & Asian Garden Workday


It's time to show our Sterling Gardens a little TLC! We will meet on Saturday, September 25 from 9:00am - 12:00pm to do some maintenance in the Butterfly and Asian Gardens. Come at 9:00am and stay as long as you can, or feel free to drop-in anytime during the work day time frame. *We will gather rain (within reason) or shine!

Students and siblings are welcome to join their parents! This is a GREAT opportunity to earn Beta hours. Bring your own gardening gloves and your own rake, hand trowel, etc. if you would like - we will also have gloves and tools available.

Not able to volunteer in person but still want to help? The Outdoor Education & Beautification (OEB) Committee is looking for volunteers in additional areas of:

Grant writing - to receive funds for garden upkeep & expansion
Contacts/connections with local irrigation & mulch providers - to maintain gardens
Donations for work-day snacks - keep the volunteers fed & hydrated
SIGN UP HERE to volunteer or provide snacks.

Please reach out to April Boyer (aprilcboyer@gmail.com) or Caroline Huddleston (carolineculp@yahoo.com) to help in other valuable ways.
