Time to enroll for the Duke TIP 7th grade talent search

Duke TIP (Talent Identification Program) is now enrolling 7th-grade students in its annual talent search.

TIP is a renowned program that allows 7th-grade students to take either the SAT or ACT college entrance exam. All participants receive some benefits. Students with exceptional scores can earn special recognition and the privilege of attending summer programs on the Duke University campus.

To qualify for the search, your child must have scored in the 95th percentile or above on a standardized achievement test (such as CogAT, CRCT or ITBS) in their 5th or 6th grade year. A $72 enrollment fee pays for the exam.

Deadlines are approaching fast. To apply by mail, you’ll need to get your application postmarked by Oct. 11. Online applications are due Oct. 21. These dates are for students who will take the SAT or ACT in December. Deadlines are later for students who want to take the test in the winter.

Complete information is available at the TIP web site.
