Five seventh grade students received state recognition through the 40th annual Duke TIP. John Alford, Nathan Applegate, Anna Brown, An Wilkes Cavanaugh and Anderson Long qualified based on their performance on the SAT. The state recognition ceremony scheduled at the University of Alabama is currently postponed due to COVID-19.
Duke University Talent Identification Program serves 16 states in the southeast and is committed to identifying and serving academically talented young people, providing students with information about their abilities, academic options and resources, as well as sponsoring challenging educational programs.
Seventh graders are invited to participate in the SAT or ACT if they score at the 95th percentile or above in one of the following areas of the ERB: verbal ability, reading comprehension, quantitative reasoning, mathematics, writing mechanics, or writing concepts and skills. Students can also qualify with other approved standardized test scores. Students took either the SAT or ACT during the months of December 2019-February 2020.
Congratulations and job well done to all who qualified, participated, and especially the five honorees!
