More 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, 159 CCSD students participated in the program, with 37 students earning State honors, and five students additionally earning Grand-level recognition.

The State and Grand-level winners were invited to a Duke University Recognition Ceremony and will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at an upcoming School Board meeting.
