College Talent Search
The mission of College Talent Search is to increase the number of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who complete high school and enroll in the postsecondary education institution of their choice.
The College Talent Search program identifies and assists individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education. The program provides academic, career and financial counseling to its participants and encourages them to graduate from high school and continue on to the postsecondary school of their choice. College Talent Search also serves high school dropouts by encouraging them to reenter the education system and complete their education.
Target high schools in the program are Caprock, Palo Duro and Tascosa. Target middle schools are Bowie, Horace Mann, Houston and Travis.
Students must be in grades 8th through 12th and enrolled in one of the target schools to be eligible. They also must be first generation (neither parent has a four-year degree) or low income (to be determined by a CTS adviser). Special exceptions can be made based on need of services.
