Welcome to WCHS GEAR UP
WCHS GEAR UP is a federally funded program that helps students prepare to succeed in education and training beyond high school. “GEAR UP” stands for “Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs,” and the program’s goal is to help more students pursue their dreams of earning a college diploma or skillset certificate.

GEAR UP provides many free activities and services to help students and their families plan, apply and pay for education and training beyond high school. Examples include:
- College campus visits and tours
- Tutoring
- Credit recovery classes
- ACT/SAT test preparation workshops
- Academic day camps and workshops
- Financial aid workshops
- College prep summer academies
- College exploration and preparation workshops
- Career academies
- Leadership academies

GEAR UP offers extra support to two groups of students and their families:
- Students in the class of 2020 can participate in GEAR UP from their seventh grade year all the way through their high school graduation.
- All 12th grade students graduating between 2015 and 2021 can participate in GEAR UP during their senior year.

At times, GEAR UP may offer activities and services to other students, depending on funding regulations and availability.
Announcements:
Seniors and parents can get one-on-one help completing the FAFSA at our financial aid workshops. The first is November 14th from 5-7pm in the media center. Seniors received a list of information they and their parents will need to complete the FAFSA in English class. Refreshments will be provided.
