HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?
To participate in the Talent Search Program, a student must complete a Talent Search Application Form. If you are in the 6TH THROUGH 12TH Grade (or under the age of 27 working on your GED), and you are interested in participating in Talent Search, complete a TALENT SEARCH APPLICATION.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Talent Search staff visit area middle and high schools to work with students who desire these services. Counselors typically visit schools a few times each month to meet with high school students in small groups or individually to discuss annual goals and complete activities designed to prepare students for college. Additionally, students are invited to participate in large group events, such as visits to college campuses.
