Become Part of State GEAR UP

GEAR UP is a program designed to help students succeed in high school and prepare for college. Parents and students do not need to pay for eligible students to participate in the program.

We start working with students in junior high, guiding them through the early years of college preparation.

 State GEAR UP Programs:

  • Ensure students have access to people and information they need to graduate high school and continue to college.
  • Provide access to financial aid resources.
  • Teach valuable study skills.
  • Provide Mentoring opportunities.

GEAR UP Seniors - College Road Trips
Seniors from Layton, Clearfield, and Roy High Schools are invited to attend college road-trips, visiting 6 universities in southern Utah and northern Nevada. This tour gives you the chance to get a feel for what university you feel most connected to through visiting classrooms, meeting with current students, etc.

Annual Survey
If parents and guardians of GEAR UP students, along with GEAR UP students, would take a moment to fill out our annual survey, we would very much appreciate it. This will help us to better track the success of our programs to make sure we provide you and your students with the best services possible.

All parents who complete the survey by December 20th will be entered to win a $50 gift card.  Students who also complete the survey will be entered to win a $50 gift card, as well.
