Duke University’s Talent Identification Program is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically talented youth. As a global leader in gifted education, Duke TIP works with students, families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and support gifted youth in reaching their highest potential. Nearly 3 million students have benefited from TIP programs and resources since 1980. TIP’s talent identification, academic, and research programs now serve as worldwide models for the education of gifted
The Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search allows students an opportunity to pursue an out-of-level testing experience by inviting them to participate in taking either the SAT or ACT college entrance examinations. These tests are exactly the same as that of high school juniors and seniors preparing for college admission. The 4th-6th Grade Talent Search offers students the chance to gain a deeper understanding of their potential by taking the optional PSAT 8/9 as an above-level test.
In addition to building their testing skills, students also have the opportunity to learn and/or possibly participate in other programs for academically talented students.
