Program Description

The purpose of the TRIO program is to primarily prepare and motivate potential first generation college students and/or disadvantaged students to successfully complete middle school and high school and go on to college. We are passionate about guiding students and their families step-by-step through the college and financial aid processes. All program services are FREE, but we expect students to make a serious commitment to both their education and the TRIO Educational Talent Search program. Students accepted into the ETS Program are participants until they graduate from high school.
