Duke TIP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted and talented students. Duke TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential. Now in its 35th year, the 7th Grade Talent Search identifies bright seventh graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school.
Students are invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exams as seventh graders, allowing them greater insight into their academic abilities. In addition, they gain valuable benefits and have access to unique resources for gifted students.
