The Educational Talent Search Program (ETS) is a federally funded TRIO program designed to encourage student retention through high school graduation, and then enrollment in a postsecondary education institution (PSE). Federal regulations mandate that we serve 583 participants annually. The first priority is Dothan City School's students who are eligible for services.
