Newport High School is proud to announce 6 of our seventh grade students qualified to participate in the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP).  Students qualify for Duke TIP by scoring in the 95th percentile or above on a recent standardized assessment (2015 or 2016 KPREP; Spring 2016 or Fall 2016 MAP).  These students ventured to Northern Kentucky University on Saturday, February 11, 2017 to take the ACT, which is a standardized assessment typically taken by 11th grade students.

Each year, Gear Up proudly sponsors a Summer Academy for our students. This is a three-week residential summer enrichment program on a university campus, where students have a daily schedule of classes taught by college professors and experience life as a college student by staying in a campus dorm, eating in campus dining halls, and interacting with college staff and students. The goal of the program is to help students develop the skills needed for college & career success and create the opportunity to visualize themselves as a future college student. In addition to academic content, students will explore different career and college options, learn how to apply for college & financial aid, and get insight into life on a college campus. As you can see, this is a very exciting opportunity for our students!  Please encourage our students to apply. If you would like more information on the Summer Academy, please visit
