Become a Part of State GEAR UP

GEAR UP is a federally funded program designed to help students succeed in high school and successfully achieve a college graduation. The program is offered free of charge to eligible students at Clearfield, Layton, and Roy High Schools as well as ninth grade students at Central Davis, Mountain, and Sand Ridge Junior High Schools.

 GEAR UP can:

  • Provide one-on-one assistance to help students plan and prepare for college
  • Enable access to academic coaching to support students' success
  • Support students and families in discovering options for post-secondary education
  • Help navigate college application and enrollment processes
  • Assist students and families to identify and obtain financial aid


If you are interested in your student attending the Weber State/Salt Lake Community College visits on February 4, 2015, please print out this permission slip and turn it in to your State GEAR UP advisor as soon as possible! Lunch and snacks will be provided. If you cannot print it from your phone or computer, please have your student see their GEAR UP advisor for a permission slip. Hope to see you there! 

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.
