GEAR UP After School

If you want to expand your preparation for the ACT and for college, the 6-week after school program at Brainerd and Howard is for you! At GEAR UP After School, you'll be able to do the following things and more:

  • Play Octopus Yo and other games against the never-before-defeated staff (who will win, as always!)
  • Brush up on your College Knowledge
  • Spend time every day with your UTC student mentor
  • Prepare for taking the PLAN exam or the ACT
  • Celebrate Halloween, Mardi Gras, and more!

GEAR UP After School is about more than just ACT preparation. We're here to help you get to, pay for, and succeed in college!
