High Academic Standards

Each year, the Duke University Talent Identification Program recognizes a large number of BCA’s students. Middle school students qualify for the TIP program by scoring within the top 5% in the nation in the math or verbal areas of a nationally recognized standardized test, such as the Terra Nova Test, which we use at BCA.
