Enrollment now open for Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search

duke-tipDuke University’s Talent Identification Program (TIP) is now enrolling students in its 7th Grade Talent Search.

To qualify for the TIP program, your child must have scored at the 95th percentile or above on at least one section of their 5th grade or 6th grade Georgia Milestones test.

Officially, registration will remain open through April 2019. But if you want your child to take the SAT or ACT during 7th grade, the deadline is sometime in September, depending on which test you want them to take and whether you’re applying online (preferred) or by mail.

Why would you want your 7th grader to take a college entrance exam?

First, if you have a highly gifted student who’s pegging the meter on standardized tests, the SAT or ACT can offer a better measure of their academic ability.

Also, Duke TIP uses these SAT and ACT scores to determine which students will be invited to participate in its highly regarded summer programs.

There is a fee to register; need-based financial aid is available.
