ETS Education Talent Search


    Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a TRIO program funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The goal of the program is to have our ETS participants graduate high school, apply and attend a college/university of their choice and graduate from a post-secondary institution. At Mesa Verde High School, this program provide ETS students with monthly group workshops, academic advising, and financial aid assistance. In addition to organizing college tours, cultural events, and other educational enrichment opportunities for ETS participants. An ETS Flyer is attached that details the services provided for ETS students at Mesa Verde High School.

    We have the capacity for 250 Mesa Verde High School students to be enrolled in Educational Talent Search.  If you have any students, you feel would be a great fit for the program, please let me know and I would be more than happy to meet with them.  

    I am extremely excited to be working alongside the Mesa Verde High School community!

    You can find me at the Welcome Center Mondays and Tuesdays, or contact me via email [ ]. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I hope to hear from you soon.  

    Thank you,
