MAP strives to assist with the development and support of talented fourth and fifth graders.

Participation in the MAP program provides information about enrichment opportunities and encouragement for gifted students.
To take part in MAP, students must meet the following criteria: attend school in the Duke University Talent Identification Program’s 16-state Talent Search region; be in fourth or fifth grade when applying; and scored at the 90th percentile or above on the national norms of a standardized achievement, aptitude, or mental ability test.
