Five Beaufort Academy seventh graders were named as Duke TIP Scholars. The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) is a gifted education program based at Duke University. Its purpose is to identify gifted children and provide them and their parents the resources for them to reach their full educational potential. The Beaufort Academy Scholars qualified by scoring at or above the 95th percentile on selected sections of designated standardized tests administered during the 6th or 5th grades.
