TRiO - Educational Talent Search

Educational Talent Search is an early intervention educational opportunity program for 7-12 grade students. Our goal is to help prepare your student to go to college and complete a degree. We emphasize personal and career development, financial literacy, academic skills, and ACT readiness.

Our college preparatory workshops prepare your student for the rigors of higher education. Campus visits, academic monitoring, and guidance with college and financial aid applications serve the needs of both you and your student. We also host summer enrichment and campus events so your student can become familiar with our campus and our staff.

Focus Areas:


 Personal and Career Development

  Weekly sessions during school hours to assess goal setting, self-esteem, decision making, and career interests

   Financial Literacy

    Information on scholarships, grants, loans, and work study programs, along with individual assistance with paperwork.

Academic Skills

Promote skills necessary for successfully entering college and completing a bachelor’s degree.

ACT Readiness

Preparation for the ACT test and how it relates to college admission.
