Partnering to Inform our Students

pheaa

Educational Talent Search has partnered for years with PHEAA (Pa Higher Education Assistance Association) to inform our students, parents, and the community on study skills, careers exploration, education opportunities, and financial aid completion. My students at Shenandoah Valley got the chance to hear about the various education levels available to them, some example careers at each level, and sample earnings. My 7th and 8th grade students, like most others, have a limited view of careers with the traditional nurse, doctor, lawyer, teacher, et al type ideas. After presenting nontraditional careers and having students realize that they don’t have to be confined by gender, location, or finances, students are energized with new ideas as ETS strives to expand the horizon of our students.
