About Scholar Weekends
Scholar Weekends are designed to give academically talented students a short but intensive academic challenge. The advanced coursework allows students to discover potential new majors or careers, many of which aren't available from most local schools.
Courses include new and innovative subjects most schools can't offer. See what we're offering this fall.
Scholar Weekends are open to students in grades seven through eleven who are Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search participants, who joined TIP through TIP Option, or who are identified as academically gifted by their local school criteria. (Seventh graders are only eligible for the spring term.)

Over the course of two days, students in grades seven through eleven can explore new subjects in detail through hands-on and project-based learning. Courses cover a range of subjects and take place in Charlotte or Durham, North Carolina, or Winter Park, Florida, throughout the academic year.
