Welcome to Hanford High School GEAR UP! Here you can find information about the Hanford High School GEAR UP Program.
G.E.A.R.U.P - Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs
S.O.A.R3 - Success and Opportunity through Affordability, Rigor, Relevance and Relationships.
The goal of HHS SOAR GEAR UP is to provide every student with the opportunity to achieve their post-secondary aspirations. By post-secondary we mean any sort of education AFTER high school. This could be a 4 year university, trade school, community college, military program, etc. GEAR UP does this through tutoring, college preparation activities, field trips, providing testing opportunities, summer programming and much more.
