High School Junior

“I LOVE GEAR UP!!! This program has truly been an amazing opportunity and guide for me. From studying for and taking the ACT to helping me find scholarships, GEAR UP has broken down everything to help me understand things better than before. I feel less stressed about the ACT and I'm more confident in my life after high school and future career. I am forever grateful that my Dad made me sit down a fill out the application form. Those who are looking for programs to help better plan your future, do GEAR UP!!! Seriously it will change your high school career for the better.”
