GEAR UP is inviting select Juniors on a Field Trip to UW on September 25th!

Students will be selected based on having at least a 3.0 GPA and having shown interest in attending the University of Washington.

Students will depart from SHS early on September 25th and will return late. Transportation to and from SHS will need to be arranged. Lunch at UW will be provided.

Students can sign up for GEAR UP's two PSAT Prep Sessions online!

GEAR UP is offering two PSAT Prep Sessions on Sept. 16th & Oct. 7th (Early Release Days) from 11 AM - 1:30 PM to help prepare students for the PSAT. The sessions will be identical, so students need only attend one. If students attended GEAR UP's PSAT Summer Camp, they need not attend PSAT Prep Sessions, as the material will be the same.

Our upcoming Parent Nights:

October 17th @ 7pm- Scholarship Expert Kristina Ellis

November 19th @ 7pm- How to Earn College Credit NOW!

December 10th @ 7pm- Play the Game of College Life
