Welcome to North Beach School District's Life After High School webpage. Please check back often, we'll be adding more information for students and parents as you prepare to graduate and move on to the next phase of your life.
We believe that young people who start planning in middle school have a better chance of entering college and completing their degrees. GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) works with educators to help middle and high school students get ready for college and gain access to financial aid.
Gear Up's Three Objectives are:
- Increase academic performance and preparation for postsecondary education.
- Increase high school graduation and postsecondary participation rates.
- Increase students’ and their families’ knowledge of postsecondary options, preparation, and finances.
The state GEAR UP program offers many resources for parents and students looking ahead to life after high school. Go to www.gearup.wa.gov.
