Welcome to the STARS! GEAR UP School Resources Page!
A multitude of planning and information resources are presented here to give you a better understanding of what the Utah State University STARS! GEAR UP program offers your school, and your teachers and administrative staff. As we aspire to expand the college bound culture in Utah, it is our mission to leverage local communities' assets to enhance students' academic achievement and college readiness in preparation for realizing their education and career goals.
The support that we offer is guided by these three objectives:
- Providing financial aid information for postsecondary education to students and parents.
- Encouraging student enrollment in rigorous and challenging curricula to reduce remedial coursework at the postsecondary level.
- Improving the number of students who obtain a high school diploma and enroll in postsecondary education.
USU’s Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services formed the STARS! (Science, Technology, Arithmetic, Reading Students) partnership as a collaboration of participating schools, community, and business partners. The program offers college readiness and outreach services to the graduating classes of 2018, 2019, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024.
