Enrollment open for Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search

Enrollment duke-tipfor Duke University’s Talent Identification Program (TIP)  7th Grade Talent Search opens today.

To enroll, your child must have scored in the 95th percentile or above on an accepted standardized test, such as the CogAT, ITBS, or Georgia Milestones.

Students who qualify for Talent Search are eligible to take the SAT or ACT as 7th graders. For kids who typically score in the 99th percentile of the standardized tests they’re given in school, taking these tests designed for high-school upperclassmen can provide a better gauge of where they stand academically.

When you become part of the TIP program, you’ll also receive information about meeting your child’s academic needs, and get access to TIP-sponsored programs, including summer programs on the Duke campus.

    I didn’t realize that there was an application process. I thought my son was invited by Duke/Tip to take the SAT/ACT after he scored high on a previous test. Is that also the case? Thank you, as always.

      I apologize for the slow response to this. Sometimes, Duke TIP reaches out through the schools, but not always. Parents who don’t receive program information through their school can apply directly through the Duke TIP web site.

        No worries! Either way, it costs $ to sign them up, yes?

        I remember paying a fee, yes. There is probably some sort of scholarship / waiver for those who can’t afford the fee.
