Greetings and welcome to New Jersey City University's GEAR UP College Bound Program. We are here to deliver support services to the students and families of Jersey City who want to succeed and create new and unimaginable opportunities. Our staff, which includes administrators, counselors, mentors, tutors, and teachers, are dedicated to providing educational enrichment, leadership development, and community outreach! We strive to create an environment that inspires change in the lives of our GEAR UP Scholars and families.
It starts with a moment. The minute you register as a GEAR UP Scholar, you will always be a GEAR UP Scholar! We help prepare you for the opportunity, but you create the path!
It is the goal of NJCU's GEAR UP College Bound Program to ensure that ALL our GEAR UP Scholars actualize their full potential and pursue their lifelong ambitions
