GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) is a federally funded college access program designed to increase the number of students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. GEAR UP defines postsecondary education as any education beyond high school that prepares students for employment. Wilkes County Schools GEAR UP works in partnership with Appalachian State University and 9 other NC counties to provide college preparation activities to 15,000 middle and high school students and parents. We are excited about having GEAR UP back on the Central Wilkes Middle School Campus. We will be sharing more information with CWMS students and parents in the near future about GEAR UP resources and upcoming programs. As we begin to plan out programming for the future we are asking CWMS families to take a few minutes and complete our GEAR UP Family Survey. The information you provide to us will help us shape the future of our programming. CLICK THE TITLE OF THIS POST TO TAKE THE FAMILY GEAR UP SURVEY.
Should you have any questions about GEAR UP, please reach out to our CWMS GEAR UP Coordinator, Mrs. Kathryn Wright at email@example.com.
