​About the Program

Program Description 


The TCC Educational Talent Search program is a federal TRiO program that identifies and assists sixth through twelfth grade students in Gadsden County from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education. Our program provides academic, career, and financial counseling to our participants and encourages them to graduate from high school and continue on to and complete their postsecondary education. 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.
