HOW CAN I JOIN TALENT
There is no charge for
services provided by Talent Search including cultural trips or
college visits. The program
requires a completed application in order to serve a student. A
completed application will give the staff information to verify
the studentís eligibility but does not guarantee admission into
the program. The information obtained by the application is
confidential and will be shared only with Talent Search staff
and for reporting purposes to the U.S. Department of Education.

at Campbell County High School in the main office.
