What is GEAR UP?

Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is a statewide, sustained and collaborative effort that provides early intervention services and a scholarship component to low-income, underrepresented students and parents.

The project will produce, support and disseminate college preparation and planning publications to students of the graduating class 2012 and families throughout the state. This goal is achieved through a combination of programs that have been designed to inform and prepare students to deal with the challenge of higher education.

In order to reach our goal we have found it necessary to develop programs that allow us to have contact with the participants at various points thorough out their middle and high school careers. By dividing the program into component areas we have been able to maintain a system that enables new students to participate and eventually become integrated into our long term program with our returning students (aka Rising Stars).

Through these steps we have been able to provide an atmosphere that is conducive for participants to benefit not only from the programming staff but also from their peers as well.
