Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is more than just a program; it's a commitment to providing students with the tools, knowledge, and resources they need to succeed in their educational pursuits. We follow and support the same group of students we start with when we receive funding. Currently, we are serving juniors and will continue to do so until they successfully graduate from high school.

How to Sign Up for GEAR UP: Class of 2026

For the Class of 2026, great news! They are automatically considered GEAR UP students and are eligible for ALL GEAR UP services entirely free of charge. This means that your child has access to a wide range of valuable resources and opportunities designed to support their academic and personal growth.

Our GEAR UP Mission Statement

Our mission is clear and compelling: "To increase student and family knowledge and awareness of post-high school opportunities."
