Inspiring a Community of Achievement



The Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) at Marion City Schools program is dedicated to supporting early college preparation and awareness. Its purpose is to increase the number of students who are prepared to enter and succeed in post-secondary education.  The federally funded program works with students in grades 7th through 12th. It supports early college preparation through academic, career and culturally woven events and activities including tutoring, mentoring, academic preparation, financial education, and college scholarships.

GEAR UP at Marion City Schools completed its eighth and final year. June 30th, 2022 was the official closure of GEAR UP at Marion City Schools. Graduates from the Class of 2022 and below will still receive their GEAR UP scholarship. Please direct any questions pertaining to GEAR UP or GEAR UP Scholarship to Mr. Austin King.
