To be eligible for Academic Adventures, students must

  • be enrolled in Duke TIP’s 4th–6th Grade Talent Search and
  • be in fourth, fifth, or sixth grade when applying.

Fall term

Due to the timing of the application for the fall term, students interested in the fall program must have enrolled in the 4th–6th Grade Talent Search by June 30, 2018. As a result, only current fifth and sixth graders who enrolled in a prior academic year are eligible for the fall term.

Student qualities

In addition, applicants should be ready to embark on an academic challenge designed for gifted students that will test their abilities and inspire their creativity. They should be excited about a day packed full of learning and have the maturity and focus to embrace that challenge.
