Educational Talent Search

Educational Talent Search (ETS) serves residents of Clarion, Jefferson and Venango Counties by providing study skills instruction, campus visitations, SAT preparation, financial aid planning, college and career planning, and leadership training. ETS serves students in grades six through returning adults, and provides guidance through the completion of high school and admittance into a post-secondary program. Designed to serve 835 participants annually, participants are selected based upon eligibility criteria established by the US Department of Education.
