168 from RCS qualify for Duke TIP

  • ()

Duke TIP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted and talented students. Duke TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential. Now in its 37th year, the Talent Search identifies bright students based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Students must score at or above the 95th percentile on a qualifying test in order to be identified.

Identified Elementary school students are invited to participate in the fourth grade through sixth grade Talent Search and to take the optional PSAT 8/9, which is designed for eighth-graders and ninth-graders. Taking an above-grade-level test is an experience that allows these gifted students in fourth grade through sixth grade to more accurately gauge their academic abilities and potential, as they need more advanced examinations than they find in their grade level. Participants in the Talent Search also receive a variety of support services and gain access to research and other information about using their academic abilities more effectively.

The students listed below have been invited to join the Duke University Talent Identification Program’s prestigious Talent Search. While not all students will participate in the program, this recognition is an important acknowledgement of their hard work and abilities.

Additionally, Duke TIP identifies academically talented seventh-grade students. Candidates are invited to take the full SAT or ACT as seventh-graders. This allows them greater insight into their academic abilities.

In addition, they gain valuable benefits and resources for gifted students. Exceptional performance on the SAT or ACT will qualify some students for Duke TIP’s renowned Summer Studies programs (on-site programs on college campuses) and/or the e-studies distance learning program.
