What is Educational Talent Search?
WITCC Educational Talent Search is a free program that serves young people in 6th through 12th grade. In addition to academic counseling, participants receive information about college admissions requirements, scholarships, and various student financial aid programs. Participants also have the opportunity to attend college campus visits with the program. Coordinators meet with participants in their schools each month
The program is designed to help students plan for and eventually enroll in college after completion of high school or their GED.
This program helps students who may be considered to be at a disadvantage because of many factors which may include:
- parent(s) who have not graduated from a four-year college
- family income levels
- educational needs
WITCC Education Talent Search prides itself on being a "One Stop Shop" for all of our participants' needs. View a sample of the many unique services we have to offer.
