The Educational Talent Search program works with middle, and high school staff to help students attend college after graduation. Talent Search assists 6th-12th grade students by providing academic, career, college, and financial aid counseling.
Talent Search programs are provided for free during the school day; approximately twice per month. Students are "school-excused" from class for about one hour for each program meeting if they have good academic and attendance records.
On the Colorado State University campus, we host the Pre-High School Institute for eighth graders and the LIFE College Preparation Program for high school juniors. For seniors, we offer a senior trip to visit universities in Colorado, and a senior retreat on survival/success skills for college.
"Talent Search opened doors to me that changed my life in positive ways. I was given an education that prepared me for success, as well as opportunities and experiences I would not have had otherwise." - Derek Rau, Colorado State University
