GEAR UP’s vision is that all students are academically, socially, and financially prepared to enter and complete the post secondary program or institution of their choice. 
    We believe that young people who start planning in middle school have a better chance of entering college and completing their degrees. 
    Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is a competitive federal program that provides six- and seven-year grants to education/community partnerships and states to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. 
    1. Increase academic performance and preparation for post secondary education.
    2. Increase high school graduation and postsecondary participation rates.
    3. Increase students’ and their families’ knowledge of post secondary options, preparation, and finances.
