Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a TRIO program 100 percent federally funded by the United States Department of Education in the amount of a $388,680 per year grant.  ETS provides 800 eligible junior high students, high school students, and adults with services that will help them realize that college is a reality in their future.

Our focus is to encourage and assist students to reach their academic and personal goals by helping them stay in school, enroll in a post-secondary school of their choice, or help them complete the high school equivalency diploma (formerly the GED).
