Ann Advances in the Duke Talent Identification Program

I enrolled in the Duke University Talent Identification Program’s (Duke TIP) Talent Search, in which academically talented seventh grade students (or eighth grade students who skipped seventh grade) are given the opportunity to take the ACT or SAT test for the purpose of finding their strong points in academics.

I took the ACT test, and I scored a 24, with the score of 31 for the Reading category, which met one of the criteria for participating in the Grand Recognition Ceremony at Duke University in North Carolina.

What organization recognized the achievement?

The Duke Talent Identification Program.

How did homeschooling help you achieve your goal?

Homeschooling helped me achieve my goal immensely, because the flexibility of homeschooling allowed me to attend a gifted program once a week. Also, Seton’s amazing and very versatile curriculum allowed me to move to a higher level in certain subjects, so I could adjust to my own adequate learning needs.

What are your interests?

My interests include playing the piano, music in general, arts and crafts, cooking, baking, and lots of reading. 🙂

What are you inspired to do with your life?

After high school, I would like to enter a convent, but if that is not what God wants of me, then I would like to go to medical school and study pediatrics or neonatology.

What are your favorite subjects and why?

My favorite subjects are science and English. I enjoy science because I like learning about the beautiful world God created and the creatures and other things in it. I enjoy English primarily because I get to read great, wholesome books and then write about them.
