Show me the money! It's a fact…college grads generally earn higher incomes and have more career opportunities. Educational Talent Search (ETS) wants to help you get the college degree you need for a winning future.

With ETS, you can reach your educational goals with resources to help you succeed. We're here for you every step of the way!

It's never too early to start thinking about college. ETS serves students in grades 6-12, motivating them to stay in school, attain academic excellence, graduate from high school and enter college. We believe that by working with kids throughout their middle school and high school years, we can help them make better choices about their future.

We encourage students and their parents to consider college and take the proper steps to ensure they achieve this goal. ETS is a federally funded TRIO program via the U.S. Department of Education, which offers free services that range from improving kids' self-esteem to filling out college application forms. Our participants explore career options by meeting people in various jobs. Campus visits let students research potential colleges. Participants also reach their personal potential by taking exciting field trips.

Did you drop out of high school or college, but now you'd like to get back on track? We can help! We work with young adults seeking to re-enter school for a positive academic future.

ETS emphasizes academic success. Our outreach specialists work closely with the staff at participating schools to provide tutoring and additional services to help our students excel in school. This highly acclaimed program helps over 300,000 kids nationally, and our local program is changing the lives of over 600 kids. Contact us today to see how we can help you achieve your academic goals!
