Covington Latin School

In Partnership With the

Duke University Talent Identification Program

Proudly Presents

Academic Adventures

Duke TIP Academic Adventures provides opportunities for academically talented students to take exciting and challenging courses. Courses introduce topics that are generally not available in students’ local schools. The experience provides enrichment, sharpens skills, and provides an opportunity for students to interact with similarly motivated peers. Academic Adventures is open to all 4th - 6th grade students who have participated in the Duke TIP 4th-6th Grade Talent Search.


Note: This program is open to students who have participated in the Duke TIP 4th-6th Grade Talent Search. Only students with a current TIP ID number may register.

Students are placed in classes on a first- come, first-registered basis. Some classes may fill before the application deadline. For the best choice of classes apply early. A wait list may be generated for classes; however, there is no guarantee that space will become available.

Financial aid is available on a first-come, first-served basis to families who demonstrate need. Financial aid is limited, and students may receive financial aid only once during the academic year. To apply for financial aid, fill out the Financial Aid Request Form and return to Covington Latin School along with your family’s most recent Federal Tax Return (1040). Upon notification of financial aid award, you must send payment for any balance owed within ten (10) days, or your financial aid and program slot may be offered to another student.


No refunds will be made after classes have begun.

Cancellations must be requested in writing ten (10) business days prior to the scheduled program date to ensure a refund of tuition minus the $25 non-refundable registration fee. After that time, cancellations will result in forfeiture of payment except in cases of illness (with doctor’s note on letterhead), death of an immediate family member, or inclement weather. Refunds will take approximately three weeks to process.


Registration is Saturday morning from 9:35- 10 a.m. By 10 a.m., students will be escorted to their classes by a Teaching Assistant. Lunch will be provided. Classes end at 4:00 p.m.

Students are free to leave with their parents after that time.
