CCSD Seventh-Graders Recognized by Duke University

Category : CCSD

Duke TIP logoMore than 30 Cherokee County School District seventh-graders have been recognized by Duke University for their SAT and ACT scores!

The Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP) supports academically talented seventh-graders who have previously scored at or above the 95th percentile on a standardized test such as CogAT by providing them with the opportunity to take the SAT and ACT, which are college-entrance exams designed for above-average 11th- and 12th-grade students.

This year, 116 CCSD students participated in the program, with 31 students earning State-level honors, and two students – Justin Bolsen of Creekland MS and Sophie Williams of Freedom MS — additionally earning Grand-level recognition.

These students were invited to a Duke University Recognition Ceremony and will be recognized by the Cherokee County Superintendent of Schools and School Board at today’s School Board meeting.
