Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search identifies 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. Duke 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 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.
