Press release from: TMI - The Episocopal School of Texas

Three students of TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas received recognition by the Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP) 2011 Seventh Grade Talent Search.

Among 11 TMI students who took either the SAT or ACT college-admission tests as seventh-graders, Christopher Clark, William Cruse and Grace Westerman qualified for state recognition, and Samantha Hobbs received Academy recognition.

Duke TIP identifies academically talented seventh-graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates complete either the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT Assessment college entrance examination, and Duke TIP provides them with comparative information on their achievement on the test.

Other eligible students from TMI who took the SAT or ACT tests are: Emilee Bassett, Aidan Christopherson, Eleanore Cole, Sarah Dickie, Carlos Gonzalez Jr., Colin Johnson and Samuel Sandell. To qualify for eligibility, students must be current seventh-graders who have scored 95 percent or higher on a grade-level standardized achievement test, aptitude test, mental-ability test, state test or IQ test within the past two years.

State recognition honors seventh-graders who have earned scores equal to or better than half of the college-bound seniors who took the tests. Academy recognition indicates that a student is eligible for participation in the Duke TIP Academy for Summer Studies.
