Select Innovation Academy Scholars Participate In Gifted Student Program
Posted on 12/09/2019

Seventeen Innovation Academy  7th grade students have been invited to join the prestigious 7th Grade Talent Search for gifted students sponsored by Duke University’s Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP).

Each year, a select group of students across the United States is identified as academically gifted based on their exceptional standardized test scores in school, and are invited to participate in the TIP program. Only students scoring in the 95th percentile or better on standardized tests qualify. These participants are then invited to take the above-grade level ACT or SAT tests designed for college-bound tenth and eleventh graders so that their academic abilities and potential can be more accurately evaluated.

In addition to these students, an additional twenty-one 8th grade students have been included through the 8th – 10th grade “TIP Option” program, and will also be participating in the recognition and ACT/SAT testing invitation. 

As a result of their selection, all of these students also receive a variety of support services and gain access to research and other information about using their academic abilities more effectively.
