You CAN do it!

GEAR UP is about the masses, not the lucky few.

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

All current 11th grade and 12th grade students at El Camino and Oceanside High Schools are part of the GEAR UP Program. If your child is a current 11th or 12th grader at ECHS or OHS, he or she is automatically enrolled in the GEAR UP Program at no cost, and will benefit from all that the GEAR UP Grant has to offer.

GEAR UP is a seven year grant awarded to MiraCosta College to work with Oceanside Unified School District to serve the students in the classes of 2017 and 2018 who started the program at Chavez Middle School and Jefferson Middle School. The GEAR UP Grant followed these students to El Camino High School and Oceanside High School and will continue to serve all students in these two high schools who are part of the graduating classes of 2017 and 2018.

GEAR UP Goals:

1. Increase academic performance and preparation for post secondary education.

2. Increase high school graduation rates and participation in postsecondary education.

3. Increase GEAR UP students’ and families’ knowledge of post secondary education options, preparation and financing.
