Cambridge Academy Students Qualify for

Duke Gifted Program
August 13, 2018

Nicolas Johnson and Anastasia Crocker, 7th grade students at Cambridge Academy
have been invited to join the Duke University Talent Identification Program’s
prestigious 7th Grade Talent Search.

Each year, Duke TIP identifies a group of academically talented students in the
United States based on their exceptional grade-level standardized test scores.
Only those who score at or above the 95th percentile qualify. Those students are
invited to participate in the 7th Grade Talent Search and to take the ACT or SAT,
which are designed for college-bound eleventh and twelfth graders. Taking an
above-grade-level test is an experience that allows these gifted seventh graders to
more accurately gauge their academic abilities and potential, as they need more
advanced examinations than they find in their grade level.
Participants in the 7th Grade Talent Search also receive a variety of support
services and gain access to research and other information about using their
academic abilities more effectively.

Congratulations also to Kristian Oliver 5th Grade for qualifying last year for the 4th
– 6thGrade Talent Search.
