Duke TIP Program

​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. ​
