Ellie Campbell, Amelia DeLamater, David Lanclos, Andrew Lunceford, Ana Madrid-Nunan, Gray Miller, Kindler Norman and Abigail Snyder.

Duke TIP’s 7th Grade Talent Search is the largest program of its kind in the nation. Since its inception in 1980, over 2 million students have participated. The 7th Grade Talent Search identifies academically talented seventh graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates are invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exam as seventh graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities. Participants also gain valuable benefits and have access to unique resources for gifted students.
