Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs

GEAR UP is a college access program for all 8th grade students.

Students will have the opportunity to go on field trips to colleges, gain support in classes and become more prepared for high school. In addition parents will also receive support and have opportunities to come to college financial literacy workshops.

GEAR UP will maintain a relationship with students through high school and into college. This support will help students succeed in school and pursue college. 


Jenelle Pangborn is the GEAR UP Site Coordinator at Anne Sullivan Communication Center.

She would be happy to hear from parents or students in the GEAR UP program!
