Several Martin Millennium Academy students have been invited to join the prestigious Fourth-Seventh Grade Talent Search for gifted students sponsored by Duke University’s Talent Identification Program.
Each year, a select group of students in the United States are identified as academically gifted based on their exceptional standardized test scores in school and are invited to participate in the Duke Talent Identification Program. Only students scoring in the 95th percentile or better on standardized tests qualify. Participants are then invited to take the above-grade level PSAT 8/9 test designed for older students so that their academic abilities and potential can be more accurately evaluated. They also receive a variety of benefits and gain access to research and other information about using their academic abilities more effectively.
Students qualifying from Martin Millennium Academy are Cole Craddock, Jaylen Higgs, Jesus Cabrera, Ainsley Hodge, Carissa Spruill, Emma Kate Harrelson, Lena Roberts, Lily Chafin, Mary Farrell Chafin, Brody Hoke, Ben Georgic, Kamryn Pitt and Cynthia Ribustello.
The Duke University Talent Identification Program is a nonprofit educational organization that is recognized as a leader in identifying and serving the educational needs of academically gifted youth. Through identification, recognition, challenging educational programs, information, advocacy and research, the Duke Talent Identification Program provides resources to gifted students, their parents, educators, and schools to help gifted scholars reach their full academic potential.
