Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a pre-college program of Sinclair Community College funded by a Federal TRIO grant from the U.S. Department of Education that identifies and assists individuals from eligible backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education. The program provides academic, career, and financial counseling and holistic support to its participants within targeted schools and works collaboratively with parents/families, school administrators and staff, and community stakeholders to achieve stipulated objectives and empower comprehensive student success.
The mission of the Sinclair Community College Educational Talent Search Program is to increase the likelihood that participants graduate from high school and go on to enroll in and complete post-secondary education.
We envision a program that works efficiently to offer high quality services and resources to participants, yields favorable outcomes, and fosters equitable, healthy student development in a positive, encouraging, and engaging environment.
ETS serves students in grades 8 – 12 at Belmont High School, Dunbar Early College High School, Meadowdale High School, and select feeder schools, including Charity Adams Earley Girls Academy, Dayton Boys Preparatory Academy, Edwin Joel Brown, Wogaman, and Wright Brothers. The majority of program participants must be prospective first-generation college students who meet federal income guidelines.
Program applications are located at Belmont High School, Dunbar Early College High School, or Meadowdale High School in the respective main offices and onsite ETS offices. Applications are accepted year-round.
