This past winter, about a dozen HIS students completed the PSAT, SAT or ACT college entrance exams as part of our affiliation with the Center for Bright Kids. Lynus’ exceptionally high ACT score caught the attention of Duke University’s Talent Identification Program. Duke’s program recognizes the top five percent of seventh graders in the country, and Lynus will be honored at the 2017 Grand Recognition Ceremony at Duke University in Raleigh, NC on May 22.

But Lynus’ scores weren’t just high, they were among the highest of the top five percent, qualifying him to take courses at an elite summer program on the campuses of Davidson College, Wake Forest and Trinity College, as well as online courses. Duke University describes the summer program as “challenging, offering an advanced intellectual experience that is equivalent to a semester-long college course.”

Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth also took notice of Lynus’ high marks. He has been invited to the campus of Johns Hopkins University to receive high honors at the Grand Ceremony this fall. As one of the top performing honorees in the country for his age group, Lynus is invited to participate in the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Intensive Studies Program in both math and humanities every year until he graduates from high school.  

Lynus is a true Wolverine. He has attended HIS since preschool and continues to grow every year as an exceptional student, musician, global citizen and role model for younger students.
