Eighteen Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School Middle School students qualify for the Duke Tips program. The largest program of its kind, participants in the Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search identify academic strengths, develop abilities and interests, and celebrate their achievements at a crucial time when they are forming their identities and looking ahead to the future. TIP assists families in determining how advanced their students’ academic abilities are and what level of educational challenge is appropriate.
As part of the talent search enrollment, Duke TIP registers eligible seventh graders to take either the ACT (no writing) or the SAT as an above-level test. This allows students to have greater insight into their abilities and it gives them the opportunity to preview a college entrance exam.
Montgomery Catholic’s qualifying students are: Top row (L to R): Kayleigh Everage, Kaylee Holmes, Preston Holk, Harrison Howell, Matthew Galvin, Lena Duncan, Cas Wilson, Kean Cullen, Michael Galvin
Bottom row (L to R): Danielle Willcox, Audrey Trant, Esa Gancayco, Andrew Bosch, Thomas Giere, Canon Bach, Cade Corbin, Michael Algarin, Laura Thomas Zhvania.
This August, Montgomery Catholic senior, Angeles Gonzalez-Ansaldi, won the title
