• Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP)

    What is the Talent Search?

    The largest program of its kind, participants in the Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search identify academic strengths, develop abilities and interests, and celebrate their achievements at a crucial time when they are forming their identities and looking ahead to the future. TIP assists families in determining how advanced their students’ academic abilities are and what level of educational challenge is appropriate.

    As part of the talent search enrollment, Duke TIP registers eligible seventh graders to take either the ACT (no Writing) or SAT as an above-level test. This allows students to have greater insight into their abilities and it gives them the opportunity to preview a college entrance exam.

    Whether you are new to TIP or participated in our 4th–6th Grade Talent Search, we hope you’ll take a moment to learn about this talent search, its valuable benefits and resources designed specifically for academically talented youth, and its qualifications for enrollment. http://tip.duke.edu/

    ***Please note the middle school will no longer notify 7th grade parents/ guardians their child qualifies for program. Due to all assessment scores availability on Parent Portal, families whom are interested in pursuing opportunity can access http://tip.duke.edu/ for enrollment process.***
