College? TRIO Educational Talent Search can help

Normandale TRIO Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a federally funded college access program sponsored by Normandale Community College. TRIO ETS works with teachers, counselors and administrators at Kennedy High School to provide services that prepare students for a college education. Normandale TRIO ETS annually assists 600 middle and high school students in grades 6-12th at local partner schools as they explore and plan their post-secondary options.
TRIO ETS primarily serves students from families that meet program income guidelines and in which neither parent has earned a four-year college degree. The goal of ETS is to increase the number of youth who graduate high school, enroll in college and complete a college degree.

Program services include:  
Academic Advising
Career Exploration
