Duke University Talent Identification Program, now in its 35th year, identifies bright 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 exams as seventh graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities. In addition, they gain valuable benefits and have access to unique resources for academically talented students.
Sacred Heart Cathedral School is pleased to announce that 31 of our current 7th graders qualified to participate in this year’s program. Twenty-four students chose to complete either the ACT or the SAT. We are so proud of the accomplishments of the following students:
Ethan Boder, Josh Borja, Mary Elizabeth Cox, Parker Griffey, Jack Hancock, Katie Holt, Mary Knight, Eleanor Mancini, Natalie Nasser, Jack Newman, Madison Oliver, Abby Orillion, Maggie Padgett, Zelan Sexton, Tony Spezia, Clara Stucke (not pictured), Sophie Susano, Maddie Tisdale, Joseph Tornstrom, Callie Tucker, Rachel Watermeier, Kimberly White, Neeley Wilson, and Ellie Wolski.
Of the 24 students that tested, 13 qualified for State Recognition. The Duke TIP State Recognition Ceremony was held earlier this week in Nashville. Congratulations to these students:
Josh Borja, Mary Elizabeth Cox, Parker Griffey, Mary Knight, Eleanor Mancini, Abby Orillion, Zelan Sexton, Tony Spezia, Clara Stucke (not pictured), Sophie Susano, Callie Tucker, Rachel Watermeier, and Ellie Wolski.
