"It's Year 4 with only three years left of the grant. We strive to reach our main goal for all Bulldogs to be college and career ready!" Jaya Martin, GEAR UP Coordinator
GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) is available to speak with 9th, 10th, and 12th grade students and their families about preparing for success with college life. GEAR UP is on site Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. in The Cafeteria.
Scheduling college tours with transportation for the students, their parents and teachers, setting up tutoring services for afterschool and weekends, and educating about financial aid and scholarships are just a few services offered. Please encourage students to stop by the office space and ask questions about continuing their education beyond senior year. Funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education and the University of North Carolina, more information regarding GEAR UP can be found at www.northcarolina.edu/gearup.
