Pittman Receives Duke TIP Recognition


The Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP) identifies academically promising 7th graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school.  Those students are then invited to take the SAT or ACT as a 7th grader.  Jackson Prep had 80 students participate in the program this year.  Of those, 29 qualified for state recognition, having scored at or above the national average of high school junior or seniors who tested on at least one part of the SAT or ACT.  One Jackson Prep 7th grader, Abigail Pittman, qualified for grand recognition, scoring at or better than 90% of high school juniors or seniors who tested.  Pittman is invited to a special recognition ceremony at Duke University.
