Program Description

The Talent Search Program is a TRIO Program designed to identify eligible high school students who have potential to continue an education beyond high school. The Talent Search Program objective is to encourage and provide participants with the confidence and assistance necessary to pursue a post secondary education. Tallahassee Community College Talent Search Program participants are selected from middle and high schools in Gadsden County. Our program publicizes the availability of financial aid and assist participants with the postsecondary application process. We also encourage persons who have not completed education programs at the secondary or postsecondary level to enter or reenter and complete postsecondary education. The goal of our program is to increase the number of youth in Gadsden County who complete high school and enroll in and complete their postsecondary education.
