Talent Search

SERVING UNION CITY AREA MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOLS, AND ROOSEVELT AND WILSON MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND CENTRAL TECH IN THE CITY OF ERIE.

The Talent Search Program is unique because of its early intervention building block.  Union City, Wilson and Roosevelt Middle School students participate in college and career awareness activities beginning as early as grade 6.  Those who continue to the high school level receive more intensive college prep activities like study skills, test taking techniques, time management, tutoring and college access support (SAT/ACT prep, college application and scholarship completion, fee waivers). A one week campus experience is offered each summer at Penn State Behrend.  Additionally, students are able to participate in field trip experiences to colleges and/or cultural events throughout the school year.  The program is limited to 538 students from these five schools and focuses on a low-income, first-generation population.
