Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP)



Since 1980, the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) has successfully developed programs and supported efforts to better motivate this nation’s brightest students beyond the often limited resources offered in our schools. Many primary schools may not have the financial and other resources to adequately provide gifted children for academic challenges, nor are they able to provide the social and emotional support that such children require.

This TIP 4th–6th Grade Talent Search is the entry point for TIP benefits that can help assist gifted students to realize their full potential. Entrance to the Duke TIP program is highly selective, and conditional on your student scoring well in The Duke TIP Talent Search screening and admissions process.

The Duke TIP program is open only to fourth, fifth, or sixth grade students who achieve a 95% or better score on one of over 150 TIP program listed standardized achievement tests, such as a state-specific aptitude test, mental-ability test, approved state criterion-referenced test, or a student who scores 125 or above on an IQ test such as the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale.


TIP Preparation and Tutoring Program

Parliament's TIP Preparation and Tutoring Program recognizes that even the most gifted youngster can be intimidated by a formal testing process and be sensitive to pressures to do well. A Parliament tutor will give your student the individual attention needed to feel comfortable and confident with the examination chosen, and to achieve the highest score possible. Our tutors will help your student become familiar with the format and content of the chosen qualifying test and review the essential material for their grade level.
