Educational Talent Search (ETS) is committed to helping students
achieve educational and personal success. Learn how schools play
a vital role in helping ETS reach these goals.
University and school partnerships take time and commitment to
ensure students are obtaining the necessary resources for a
successful educational experience. The UC Davis Educational
Talent Search program staff serve as a bridge to assist students,
their families and ETS schools by visiting school sites on a
weekly basis. For instance, ETS advisors visit a school on a
specific day and provide workshops for ETS students as well as
provide individual personal and academic assessments. This weekly

ETS advisors attend yearly conferences to obtain updates on
college requirements, financial aid guidelines and college
entrance exams. The information obtained at these conferences
helps ETS participants receive information about study skills,
motivation and values clarification. Each student’s transcript is
reviewed so that students see their progress and areas needing
improvement. ETS staff can provide undergraduate admission
presentations for the entire senior class and other workshops
that may pertain to seniors.
ETS participants will be held accountable to succeed in school
and in class. All students must have a GPA above a 2.0 and have
an average attendance record at school and at ETS sessions.
Moreover, they are expected to attend at least one workshop per
month. The ETS program at UC Davis is committed to helping
empower students with knowledge and the personal strength they
need to fulfill their goals.
Since ETS staff visit schools weekly, the schools assure general
support through the counseling and administration offices,
provide a classroom for workshops and access to class schedules
and transcripts. This support guarantees success for students and
