- — Valwood Headmaster, Dr. Darren Pascavage, announced this week the names of the seventh graders who qualified for the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP). These students  scored in the 95th or better percentile on a nationally-normed achievement test. Candidates for the program are invited to take the ACT or the SAT as seventh graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities. The Talent Search is now beginning its thirty-third year and is the largest program  of its kind in the nation. Over 2 million students have completed the Talent Search since its inception in 1980.
