Who Can Participate?

We recommend the Talent Search for students who exhibit outstanding academic talent based on the following criteria:

Nationally normed testing

Achievement at the 95th percentile or higher on one or more subtests of a nationally normed standardized test

State testing

Achievement at advanced levels on state tests, designated as advanced proficiency, distinguished, honors, or gifted

Superior academic performance

Increasingly, scores from nationally normed, grade-level test scores are not available. Students who, through other means, show academic performance or ability well above that of age-mates are welcome to join the Talent Search. The assessment provided through Talent Search may be of particular value in these cases.
