Welcome to Talent Search

Educational Talent Search is a federally funded program that encourages students to graduate from high school and enroll in post-secondary education. Students meet with ETS coordinators in group and individual sessions throughout the school year. Monthly participant workshops focus on success in high school, career awareness, college selection and financial assistance. Special events give students the opportunity to gain leadership skills, learn more about careers and visit college campuses.

The Central College ETS program serves students in Mahaska, Polk, and Wapello counties in Iowa at 6 high schools and 8 middle schools. Our office is located on the campus of Central College in Pella.
