GEAR UP is a federally-funded grant program that provides support and guidance to students so they will succeed in high school and have the opportunity to go to college. 

We provide students and parents with services such as tutoring, academic support, career exploration, summer programs, college campus visits, parent outreach, college readiness, post-secondary information, and in-classroom technology: including laptops and calculators.

We serve the class of 2017 & 2018.
