MISD 8th Graders Attend GEAR UP To College & Beyond Summer Program

Earlier this summer MISD’s rising 8th grade students were given the opportunity to attend GEAR UP To College and Beyond 1st Summer Program at Decker Middle School!

Through the 3-week program students were able to explore in and out of state colleges, college requirements, financial literacy, lead presentations on various colleges, research different job opportunities, and learn overall how to begin planning for their future. All students were able to begin developing the right mindset to succeed beyond high school. Students explored the University of Texas at San Antonio, Google, and Typhoon Texas. The students had an amazing summer and are eagerly looking forward to GEAR UP programs throughout this upcoming school year and next summer.

All rising 8th grade MISD students are a part of the GEAR UP cohort. GEAR UP Coordinators will continue to work with all rising 8th grade students towards becoming career and college ready each year!

If you have any questions about GEAR UP To College and Beyond feel free to reach out to your respective GEAR UP Coordinators.

A principios de este verano, los estudiantes del octavo grado de MISD tuvieron la oportunidad de asistir al 1er programa de verano de GEAR UP al colegio y más allá en la escuela media Decker. A través de este programa de 3 semanas, los estudiantes pudieron explorar dentro y fuera de las universidades estatales, requisitos universitarios, educación financiera, asistieron a presentaciones de liderazgo en varias universidades, investigaron diferentes oportunidades de trabajo y, en general, aprendieron cómo comenzar a planificar su futuro. Todos los estudiantes pudieron comenzar a desarrollar la mentalidad correcta para tener éxito más allá de la escuela secundaria. Los estudiantes también exploraron la Universidad de Texas en San Antonio, Google y Typhoon Texas. Los estudiantes tuvieron un verano increíble y esperan ansiosos participar en los programas de GEAR UP a lo largo de este próximo año escolar y el próximo verano. Todos los futuros estudiantes del 9° grado de MISD son parte de la clase de GEAR UP. ¡Los coordinadores de GEAR UP continuarán trabajando con todos los estudiantes que pasan al  9 grado para ayudarlos a convertirse en profesionales y que estén listos para la universidad cada año!  

Si tiene alguna pregunta sobre GEAR UP To College and Beyond, puede comunicarse con sus respectivos coordinadores de GEAR UP.
