Duke TIP Gand Recognition for Rosarian Student Harry Scarola
Rosarian Academy 7th-grader Harry Scarola was recently recognized at Duke TIP’s Grand Recognition Ceremony. Harry received an award for scoring in the top 5% nationally among all 7th graders who took the ACT. Harry scored a 33 out of 36 on the Reading section of the ACT and a composite score of 24. 604 7th graders from around the country were recognized at Duke University’s Cameron Indoor Stadium on Monday, May 20, 2019.
Harry was also recognized at the Duke TIP State Recognition Ceremony at FAU Boca earlier in May. Around 400 students received state honors for scoring a 22 or above on a section of the ACT.
Harry’s high performance on this standardized test has qualified him as a Caroline D. Bradley scholarship candidate. He will find out in June if he is selected as a recipient.
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.

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.
