• A huge CONGRATULATIONS to all of our seniors in the class of 2023! You have officially crossed the finish line. As you begin this new chapter in your life, we wish you all the best. Remember, you can accomplish your goals, just stay focused and never give up. GEAR UP team members will continue to stay connected with you, as you transition to college, a trade school program, the military or work force. 

    We recognize our seven GEAR UP high schools: Englewood, First Coast, Jean Ribault, Riverside, Terry Parker, Westside and William M. Raines. As well, we acknowledge our faithful partners who have diligently worked with our students since middle school: Communities in Schools, Florida State College at Jacksonville, I'm A Star Foundation, and University of North Florida. We have truly functioned as a "village" support system for our students. 

    WELCOME GEAR UP students in the graduating class of 2027!  We are thrilled to embark on this exciting journey with you in high school.  Get ready for a transformative experience filled with valuable opportunities, support and personal growth.
