45 CSISD seventh-graders to be recognized by Duke

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Most wait until they are juniors or seniors to take the SAT or ACT exams, but a group of 78 College Station ISD seventh graders recently took the college entrance exams as part of the Duke University Talent Identification Program.

Of those, 45 did well enough to qualify for participation in the State Recognition Ceremony. Additionally, nine of the 45 state qualifiers earned a trip to Duke University to attend the Grand Recognition Ceremony.

The Duke University Talent Identification Program’s (Duke TIP) 7th Grade Talent Search identifies students in 16 states in the Southeast, Midwest, and Southwest who have scored in the 95th percentile on a grade-level achievement test. As part of the program, these academically talented students take above-level, college-entrance exams (SAT or ACT) to learn more about their abilities.

This year, of the over 63,000 participants nationally, 24,847 students have been invited to attend State Recognition Ceremonies and 1,903 students have been invited to the Grand Recognition Ceremony.

The State Recognition Ceremonies honor seventh graders who have earned scores equal to or better than half of the college-bound seniors who took the tests. Working with host academic institutions, Duke TIP sponsors 34 state ceremonies in its 16-state Talent Search region during the months of May and June. Speakers include university administrators and professors from the host institutions, state and government officials, and accomplished former Duke TIP students.

The Grand Recognition Ceremony honors seventh graders who have earned scores equal to or better than 90% of college-bound seniors who took the same tests. The event will be held May 23 at Cameron Indoor Stadium on the Duke University campus in Durham, N.C.
