Getting Started


Enrollment for the 7th Grade Talent Search is currently closed. We will open enrollment on August 1, 2019, for qualified students who will be in seventh grade during the 2019–2020 academic year. When we reopen in the fall, you can enroll online.

The timeline

Enrollment is open from August 1 to April 30.

When they enroll in the 7th Grade Talent Search, students select a test date for either the ACT or SAT—an above-grade-level testing experience that is at the heart of the 7th Grade Talent Search. (Read more about our above-level testing philosophy.) They also immediately receive access to other benefits, including specialized publications.

Taking the ACT or SAT independently

Part of the talent search enrollment fee covers the ACT or SAT test registration, so we have an alternate enrollment process for students who have taken or will take the ACT or SAT on their own. It allows those students to use the ACT or SAT scores they already have to access TIP benefits without testing again. Please check back after August 1 for details on this process.
