Cornell Student Selected for Prestigious Program at Duke

Jonathan Hanson, a seventh-grade student at Cornell High School, has been invited to join the prestigious 7th Grade Talent Search for gifted students sponsored by Duke University’s Talent Identification Program (TIP). Each year, a select group of students in the United States are identified as academically gifted based on their exceptional standardized test scores in school and are invited to participate in the Duke TIP program. Participants are then invited to take the above-grade-level ACT or SAT tests designed for college-bound tenth and eleventh graders so that their academic abilities and potential can be more accurately evaluated. They also receive a variety of support services and gain access to research and other information about using their academic abilities more effectively.

Two of TIP's educational programs require a minimum ACT or SAT score. Jonathan qualified for these programs based on his ACT scores. Jonathan will be participating in the eStudies program through local universities this summer.
