Thomas Jefferson 7th graders recognized by Duke University
NEWS RELEASE ISSUED SEPTEMBER 4, 2013 BY THE THOMAS JEFFERSON INDEPENDENT DAY SCHOOL
Congratulations to the 11 TJ 7th graders who qualified for the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) 7th Grade Talent Search.
The 7th Grade Talent Search identifies academically talented 7th graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school (TJ students who scored at or above the 95th percentile in 6th grade).
Candidates are invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exam as 7th graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities.
These students have the opportunity to participate in unique enrichment programs, and gain access to valuable resources for gifted students.
