    I just registered Joseph for the Duke TIP program (girls are not old enough yet).
    They have a lot of courses that they offer. A few are even free (Joseph is doing the code course right now).
    There are a few that Joseph would definitely be interested in, so I thought I would share. The courses are $35-95 from what I can see.

    WOW! They've added a lot to the program since I participated in their 7th grade talent search eons ago. Some of my fonder middle school memories are tied up with them.

    That looks really interesting! Noah will only be in 3rd grade this year, but I'll keep it in mind (hopefully :)) once he is old enough.

    Thanks for posting it!

    Erik is now getting to the age where he can do some of these programs. I need a list--do you know what else is out there? he'll be going into third this year.

    Johns Hopkins also has a program. Their courses are a lot more expensive.

    Teri, did you have a "formal" test for the scores? I have given G the TAKS but it was at home for our personal use not in a "formal" setting. Some of the courses look really interesting.

    I found the Northwestern University program. Their classes are pretty expensive, too, but it's more local for the Talent Search.
