Parker seventh-grader joins Duke University's talent search

Posted

Eva Siders, a seventh-grader at Sagewood Middle School, has been invited to join the Talent Identification Program seventh-grade talent search through Duke University.

The TIP program identifies academically talented students throughout the United States each year, based on exceptional grade-level standardized test scores. Siders scored above the 95th percentile, and qualified to take part in the seventh-grade talent search, and to take the ACT or SAT. Both tests are designed for college-bound 11th- and 12th-graders.

Siders is now eligible to attend Duke TIP's Summer Studies program at the academy level, which includes a three-week residential program held at 13 college campuses, where students will take part in interactive, inquiry-based courses equivalent to a semester-long college course or a year of high school instruction.

Siders will also attend the TIP Scholar Weekend in Winter Park, Florida, which will offer a weekend of intensive academic challenges.
