Within the last five years, an average of 80% of Charlotte Prep’s 7th Grade class qualified for the Duke Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP). To qualify, a student must score at the 95th percentile or higher on grade-level standardized testing recognized by Duke TIP, such as the Education Records Bureau (ERB)
Comprehensive Testing Program. These qualification rates far exceed the national average.
