We are proud to say that we offer the Duke TIP Program for our students.
The Duke University Talent
Identification Program (Duke TIP) is
a nonprofit organization dedicated
to serving academically gifted and
talented youth. As a world leader
in gifted and talented education,
Duke TIP works with students, their
families, and educators to identify,
recognize, challenge, engage, and
help students reach their highest
potential. TIP’s talent searches
serve as the entry point to academic
benefits and programs for grades 4–12. Since its inception in 1980, over 2.5 million
gifted students have taken advantage of the resources offered at Duke TIP.
Test Score Requirements
Students must meet one of the following requirements:
Have a score at or above the 95th percentile on any one accepted subtest or total battery/composite on an approved grade-level standardized achievement test, aptitude test, mental-ability test, or approved state criterion-referenced test.
- Students need qualify in only one of the accepted subtests or total battery/composite.
- Scores from either of the two most recent test administrations are accepted. For most seventh grade students, this represents scores from either the fifth or sixth grade.
