On May 30th, GEAR UP Coordinators invited rising Manor ISD 9th grade students and families participating in the UT Summer Camp to a parent info meeting at Manor New Tech Middle School.
UT Summer Camp is during the week of June 2nd-June 8th. The UT Summer Camp is a week-long college readiness and prep program for rising 9th grade students. Students will be able to experience college life and will be staying at UT in Jester dorms during the week. All 93 students participating received a large GEAR UP duffle bag, towels, and necessities to support them throughout the week long camp.
Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is a competitive grant program of the U.S. Department of Education. GEAR UP increases the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education by providing States and local community-education partnerships six-to-seven year grants to offer support services to high-poverty, middle and high schools. The current cohort of GEAR UP students is the class of 2023, rising 9th grade students. GEAR UP Coordinators will also be transitioning to the high schools with their students in the upcoming school year.
