King’s Way introduced the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) in the early fall of 2019. The Duke University Talent Identification Program is a nonprofit educational organization that is recognized as a leader in identifying and serving the educational needs of academically gifted youth. Through identification, recognition, challenging educational programs, information, advocacy and research, Duke TIP provides resources to gifted students, their parents, educators, and schools to help gifted scholars reach their full academic potential. For more on Duke TIP talent searches, including qualification requirements for its 4th-6th Grade Talent Search and 7th Grade Talent Search, visit www.tip.duke.edu.
Our induction was a huge success. Parents have been receiving information quarterly on how their talented children can be involved in enriching Duke TIP activities. Currently, one of our students is planning to attend a camp at Duke University in early June (pending COVID 19). We’re working to grow this program in Fall 2020 and are excited that we have this partnership to offer to the families at King’s Way.
