The Benefits of Enrolling in Duke TIP's Talent Search Programs

The AP Program


"The College Board’s mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity. We are a not-for-profit membership organization committed to excellence and equity in education."

Identification Process for Gifted and Talented Students

There are three phases in the identification process:

  • Referral - When a student is referred to the GT specialist for gifted services by a teacher, parent, or community member.
  • Assessment - Data is collected by the GT specialist on the referred student such as testing and observations.
  • Identification - A committee will meet to determine if there is a need for services.

*Pre-AP/AP Reminders*

If you would like to request a change into or out of a Pre-AP or AP course, you have 10 days from the first day of school to request a schedule change!
