Fourteen Tigers Receive Special Recognition in Annual Duke University Talent Search

Twenty-nine Saint Henry students were recently acknowledged by Duke TIP’s 7th Grade Talent Search for their academic achievement. To qualify for this program students must score at or above the 95th percentile on a grade-level standardized test, and once enrolled, they enjoy benefits that last through the end of high school, including the opportunity to take the ACT or SAT, access to special publications and other academic resources.

Of those Saint Henry students who qualified, twenty students choose to participate. Stella Harris was awarded grand recognition, a distinction for students who earn ACT or SAT scores that are approximately equal to the 90th national percentile rank for college-bound seniors taking the tests.

Thirteen Saint Henry students received state recognition, an honor awarded to students who earn ACT or SAT scores that are approximately equal to the 50th national percentile rank for college-bound seniors taking the tests.  In addition, twelve of the state recognized students qualified for the Academy of Summer Studies and another four qualified for the Center for Summer Studies at Duke.
