Academic Talent Search


Academic Talent Search is a program dedicated to assisting students in identifying & maintaining healthy academic habits from elementary through high school. Our goal is to ensure that students have access to the tools & resources available to be successful on their journey to higher education.


Bluffs Schools have a dedicated ATS advisor, Paula Chapman, who will come on-site to meet with your student during school hours,
to explore a variety of tools such as:



  • Study Skills
  • Time Management
  • Goal Setting
  • Tutoring
  • Self-Esteem/Mentoring
  • College & Career Exploration
  • ACT/SAT fee waivers




ATS also plans several educational & cultural events over the summer and throughout the school year that are FREE FOR STUDENTS TO ATTEND!


Some of our past & future events include:


  • St. Louis Aquarium
  • Raging Rivers Waterpark
  • Horseback Riding
  • The Budding Artist
  • Hannibal Mo Trip
  • Campus Visits
    (SIUE, MIZZOU, WIU, UIS, IC, etc.)





Going on a campus visit of your own? Let us know, we’ll give you $100!
