TRiO Educational Talent Search
Welcome To Educational Talent Search!
It is truly a pleasure to welcome you to the Los Angeles Southwest College’s Educational Talent Search (ETS) program webpage.
If you are a middle school or high school student who wants to go to college after you graduate high school, LASC’s Educational Talent Search (ETS) program can help make your transition from high school to college smooth and successful! Our purpose is to provide students who are low-income and/or potential first-generation college students, or students who want to re-enter and complete high school, academic and educational programs and services that will allow them to better understand and pursue their educational options and opportunities and to be competitive in their quest for post-secondary education and beyond.
Also, take time to meet with an advisor or program manager. Schedule an Appointment here.
Each year, colleges across the globe consider more excellent applicants for freshmen admission than they can possibly admit. Most admission review processes single out from a large and growing pool of academically strong applicants those unique individuals who have demonstrated intellectual curiosity, tenacity, and commitment to community service.
These select applicants are the ones who would contribute the most to a dynamic learning environment; they are also the applicants who would make the most of being immersed in such an environment. Although high school grade point average and standardized test scores are important indicators of academic achievement used in most admission review processes, they only tell part of the story. Talent Search has a charge to ensure most participants: complete each grade level, graduate high school, complete rigorous coursework, enroll in a post-secondary educational program, and successfully complete their program within a specified amount of years.
Our country’s future depends heavily on this important charge. So, Talent Search encourages student, parent, and guardian participation to ensure student success while providing stimulating learning environments that best prepare leaders-in-the-making for challenges and opportunities.
We expect that your experience in the Talent Search program will be rewarding, interesting, and one that you will remember for years to come.
