GEAR Up is here to help:

Our goal is to ensure success in academics for all students across the board!

GEAR UP is designed to help students succeed in school, graduate from high school, and be prepared to successfully attend post secondary education.

GEAR UP is a seven year grant awarded to MiraCosta College to work with Oceanside Unified School District to serve the students who started the program at Chavez, Martin Luther King, Jefferson and Lincoln Middle Schools. The GEAR UP Grant will follow these students to El Camino High School and Oceanside High School and will continue to serve all students in these two high schools.

If your child is a current middle schooler in OUSD, he or she can be automatically enrolled in the GEAR UP Program at no cost, and will benefit from all that the GEAR UP grant has to offer.
