What is GEAR UP Central?
GEAR UP is an acronym for Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs. It is a federally-funded grant designed to increase the number of cohort students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education.
GEAR UP Central currently serves the Freshmen Class of 2020 at Millwood, Mid-Del, and Western Heights High Schools. All GEAR UP activities and service are at no cost to the student, parent, teacher, or school administration! In order to become enrolled, parents must complete a GEAR UP authorization form and return it to their child’s school. It’s that simple. (Authorization forms are available at the website below and can also be emailed to Tera Landrum.)
