Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School proudly announces five middle school students who have earned State Recognition for their ACT scores by the Duke Talent Identification Program, one of which, received Grand Recognition (one of only 1,600 nationwide).
The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) identifies academically talented seventh grade students in sixteen states across the Southeast, Midwest, and Southwest who have scored at the 95th percentile or above on standardized achievement tests. Montgomery Catholic had 21 middle school students who qualified to participate in the Duke TIP Program last fall with five students whose high scores qualified them for state recognition.
Montgomery Catholic students who will be honored at the Duke Talent Search State Recognition Ceremony are Virginia Bach, Anna Katherine Barranco, Jacob Flowers, Zoe Rutland and Emily Talbot.
Emily will travel to Duke University to receive her Grand Recognition medal on May 19 with her parents Angel and Mike Talbot of Wetumpka.
Virginia Bach and James Walker qualified for Academy of Summer Studies and Anna Catherine Barranco, Jacob Flowers, Zoe Rutland and Emily Talbot qualified for Center for Summer Studies.
Montgomery Catholic is very proud of these hard working students. Congratulations!
