Started in 1980, Duke University’s Talent Identification Program (TIP) is committed to identifying talented students and to providing model programs and services to support the development of their optimal educational potential. TIP is dedicated to being the national leader in offering innovative, high quality programs and services for academically talented children and youth and their parents, with the goals of better understanding and serving America’s most academically talented students.
Students qualify by scoring in the 95th percentile or above on a standardized achievement, aptitude, mental ability test battery or approved state criterion-referenced test while attending 5th or 6th grade. Once identified, they are invited to complete either the SAT I: Reasoning Test or the ACT Assessment college entrance examination. Way to go Brook Hill students!
