DAVIDSON, N.C. – Nineteen seventh graders -- 79% of the class -- at Woodlawn School have qualified for the 7th Grade Talent Search sponsored by the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP). Duke TIP's 7th Grade Talent Search is the largest program of its kind in the nation. More than two million students have participated in the Talent Search since its inception in 1980.
Duke TIP's 7th Grade Talent Search identifies academically talented 7th graders based on standardized test scores or IQ tests achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates are then invited to take the SAT or the ACT college entrance exams as 7th graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities.
