Program Description

Academic Talent Search starts working with students in middle school to foster self-esteem, curiosity, and cooperative team-building. Sixth and seventh grade students are recruited from targeted schools in December and January of each year, and the application period typically closes by February 15. Two-thirds of ATS students are low income eligible and come from families where neither parent has a bachelor's degree. Once admitted to ATS, students participate in the program�s activities and services through high school graduation, as long as they follow behavioral guidelines and meet program expectations. We recognize that by keeping up with a high standard of respect and accountability, our students will be better prepared to succeed in college.
