Parents play a vital role in shaping the trajectory of a student’s success. Because of this, our students often look to parents for guidance about the unknown. One unknown faced by many students is wondering about life after high school. The fact is, they've never been to college, and they can have a hard time understanding the process for getting there. And, when parents lack knowledge about this process, the result can be frustration. GEAR UP seeks to prepare parents to better understand the process and costs associated with going to college. This information is not just for children, but for parents too.
