Services such as tutoring and academic, career, personal and financial aid counseling as well as job site and college visits are provided to 680 students each year. Talent Search participants are encouraged to enter, continue, or resume a program of study at the secondary or post-secondary level.

Upward Bound

Through the federally funded Upward Bound program, the college provides Trenton city high school students with college preparatory courses and tutoring as well as personal and career counseling. Upward Bound's primary purpose is to help students improve their grades and develop the skills needed for college or other programs of higher education. In addition, limited college credit courses are available to ease the transition from high school to college.
