NCS Duke TIP Scholars, 2017

Each year the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) recognizes academically gifted students in grades 4-7. The program, begun in 1980 with help from the Duke Endowment, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted and talented youth. Duke TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential. Students qualify for the 4th–6th Grade Talent Search by achieving a score in the 95th percentile on a qualifying exam (Stanford Achievement Test at NCS). Students qualify for the 7th Grade Talent Search by scoring at or above the 95th percentile on a grade-level standardized test.
