About TIP’s Summer Studies Program
Duke TIP’s Summer Studies Program is demanding, intense, and rewarding. Students take part in interactive, inquiry-based learning that challenges them to think critically about themselves and their world. Led by content experts, courses are equivalent to a semester-long college course or a year of high school instruction. Our high-energy classrooms encourage students to take academic risks in a supportive environment and to stretch their intellectual abilities. TIP’s active residential program is a lot like a structured version of the college experience, providing opportunities for friendship and fun.
The Summer Studies Program is TIP’s original program, and only students who score at the very top of their grade level on the ACT or SAT are eligible to attend. TIP students must qualify for either our Center or Academy Summer Studies Program to apply.
