St. John Neumann School in Farragut congratulated four seventh-graders for outstanding achievement on the ACT exam for the Duke Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP).
Three students, Ella Myers, Isabella Ramos, and Alonso Vela, received state recognition for their scores. These students scored at or above the national average of recent high school graduates on at least one part of the ACT and are invited to attend a special recognition ceremony held at a university in Tennessee.
Additionally, Ella Renfree, Isabella, and Alonso have qualified to participate in courses offered at the Center for Summer Studies, and Ella Myers has qualified to participate in the Academy for Summer Studies. These programs are some of the most challenging and rigorous available to academically gifted students across the country.
