GEAR UP: GAINING EARLY AWARENESS AND READINESS FOR UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

GEAR UP

Hello students, parents, and partners!  Welcome to the Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) webpage.  Here at GEAR UP, we believe that college Starts With A Goal (SWAG). Our team is dedicated to helping our students prepare for and succeed in college by providing academic services, college planning, leadership building and career exploration.

Students!  On this webpage, you can find links from free online tutorials to financial aid information.  We hope you find these resources useful.

Online Resources

  • Khan Academy is a website that provides free educational tutorials in subjects from math to history. The video provides great visuals and explanations meant to supplement a student's learning.
  • Patrick has it covered when it comes to math.  He has extensive credentials and experience in math.  This free website is entirely math focused and contains an array of math topics for those who are interested.

Financial Aid/Scholarship Information

  • Learn more about financial aid on the FAFSA website.  In addition, this is the website you come to when applying for federal student aid.
  • A checklist containing steps students must take each year to prepare for college.
  • Narrow down your scholarship search using the FastWeb website.  As ninth graders, you may not qualify for most scholarships, but knowing future qualifications will help you prepare to be the best candidate once you can apply.
