Register 4th, 5th and 6th graders now for Duke TIP

The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) has opened registration for its 4th-6th grade talent search.

When you enroll in the talent search, your child will have access to online enrichment opportunities, and you will have access to resources to help you raise your high-achieving student. Your child also will be eligible to attend Academic Adventures, weekend enrichment classes held a few times each year at the University of Georgia.

Kids in the 4th-6th grade talent search also may choose to take the ACT Explore exam, a standardized test traditionally given to 8th graders. This above-grade-level testing offers a way to better measure the achievement of kids who typically peg the meter on their grade-level standardized tests.

Once your child is accepted into 4th-6th TIP, benefits continue through their sixth-grade year; you don’t have to reapply each year.

To qualify for TIP, students must have tested in the 95th percentile or above on an achievement test in the past two years. (TIP does accept a few other tests. See the talent search web site for details.)
