Duke TIP State Recognition

Every year, as part of the Duke Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP), Brittany Wood seventh graders have the opportunity to take either the ACT or the SAT test along with all the high school students preparing for college.

Of the seventh graders who chose to take one of the tests this year, Ethan Braeske, Alan, Buckner, Catherine Hoff and David White were named recognized for doing as well or better than 50% of all students who took the ACT nationally.

David White, Catherine Hoff, and Alan Buckner and their families
being recognized by the School Board for their academic excellence.

Students invited to a state ceremony meet at least one of the following criteria:

ACT English ≥ 20
ACT Math ≥ 20
ACT Reading ≥ 21
ACT Science ≥ 21
* Or with three of the four following scores English = 19, Math = 19, Reading = 20, Science = 20

SAT Math ≥ 520
SAT Critical Reading ≥ 510
SAT Writing ≥ 500
*Or with two of the three following scores: Math = 510, Critical Reading = 500, Writing = 490

The Duke TIP was founded in 1980 and is dedicated to the cultivation and education of talented youth. Duke TIP's 7th Grade Talent Search identifies academically promising 7th graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates are then invited to take the SAT® or the ACT® as 7th graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities.
