This category is most associated with the child who is

unique in thought, spirit, and personality—the kid who

thinks outside the box. Often categorized as “gifted,” we look

at the intellectual as the kid whose pursuit is learning; the

child who is hungry to expand his or her mind. The quest of

these children is to absorb as much information as possible;

these children make a sport out of intense thinking. These

children are scholars, a term which has fallen by the wayside

over the years. Others are “intellectual competitors” who enjoy

competing against others just for the challenge of the contest.

The American Mathematics Competition is one such challenge

that recognizes the mathematician as a scholar and a

sportsman. They call their kids Mathletes or Math Athletes,

and it is a program that recognizes and encourages the child

with mathematical aptitude.

The Duke Tips Program is one of four Talent Identification

Programs (TIPs) in the country. It provides diverse programs

specially designed to meet the needs of gifted children.

One of the most respected programs in the country, it focuses

on intellectual programs and learning experiences for the

“superintelligent” child.
