Educational Talent Search

Educational Talent Search seeks students who have the desire, ability, and motivation to excel in their education. Joining ETS implies students and their parents are willing to make a commitment to their future.

ETS advisors enhance student's personal and academic development through monthly workshops at the school which the student attends, one-on-one counseling, college visits, leadership conferences and summer program opportunities. All programs and services are free, but students are expected to make a serious commitment to both their academic education and the ETS program.
