ICCS Seventh Graders recognized as Duke Scholars
More than half of the seventh grade class at Immaculate Conception Catholic School has earned the recognition of Duke Scholar 2016 by placing in the 95th percentile in the nation or higher on standardized testing, school officials said.
The Duke University Talent Identification Program identifies and recognizes academically talented students and provides programs to support their optimum educational potential, according to a program release. The nine ICCS seventh graders are now eligible to take the college-level ACT or SAT entrance exam this spring.
ICCS students recognized include Chris Espinoza, Cohen Finch, Abraham Goin, Valentina Litton-Sierra, Makaya Monahan, Audrey Tull, Jamie Ordonez, Amanda Wisker and Addison Woodrum.
