The Virginia Highlands Community College Educational Talent Search Program has served students of the VHCC service region of Southwest Virginia since 1994. Educational Talent Search is part of the federal TRIO programs.
The goal of VHCC Educational Talent Search is to provide training and information to middle and high school students that prepares them to make good decisions about their post-high school plans. We encourage students to continue their education beyond the high school level and provide on-going support and advisement.
We serve the middle and high schools in Bristol Virginia, Washington County, Virginia and Chilhowie and Northwood schools in Smyth County, Virginia. Approximately seven hundred students participate in the program each year.
This web site is particularly intended to help students already enrolled in Talent Search stay up-to-date about meetings and upcoming events. In addition, with this web site we hope to inform members of the public about our program and services.
Along with Educational Talent Search, VHCC also sponsors Upward Bound and Project EXCEL TRIO programs.
