Talent Search is a pre-college, TRiO program funded through a grant from the Department of Education.
To provide opportunities for personal, intellectual, social and cultrual growth for students with the potential to succeed in higher education.
Talent Search is a pre-college program for 6th through 12th graders. We go into our target schools and provide monthly workshops on various "college prep" topics for our students, based on their grade level and interest. Topics include study skills, test taking skills, writing skills, college admissions requirements and forms, financial aid information and money management skills. We also offer tutoring, job shadowing and visits to area colleges and cultural sites. The program is absolutely free to students in our target schools: Carl Junction, Carthage, Joplin, Riverton, Sarcoxie and Webb City.
