The GEAR UP Program partnered with the Wonderful College Prep Academy and now services our current 8th and 9th grade students. Our program follows them until their first year of college. GEAR UP is a federally funded program that focuses on increasing the college and career readiness of low-income students in communities nationwide. GEAR UP will work with students over the next six years and help the cohorts successfully transition into high school and into their first year of college. We have a ton of events coming soon and we want to make sure that parents and staff know what is going on within GEAR UP and the students we serve. We will have parent engagement workshops and community, district, and on-site events throughout the year. For more information, please CLICK below:
