The GEAR UP program offers a variety of supportive services like in-class tutoring and after-class tutoring to students in the Class of 2024 and 2025. We also provide field trips, college visits, and industry sector visits for interested students. In addition to that, we feature college/career counseling and student/parent workshops. GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) is a federal partnership grant awarded to MiraCosta College to partner with Oceanside Unified School District at the four Middle Schools and two High School (Chavez, Jefferson, Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., El Camino, and Oceanside) to increase long term career and post-secondary success for students.
