Create Your Next
Arizona GEAR UP, in collaboration with Expect More Arizona, created a College and Career Planning Guide, aimed at 8th grade students and their families. Premised around four grade-appropriate steps to success – Dream, Plan, Work Hard and Track, the Guide contains important information about education options –types of credentials and types of institutions, career exploration, and high school course recommendations. It also provides:
- a checklist for tracking progress 8th grade through 12th grade,
- tips for finding money for college
- a list of postsecondary institutions in Arizona, with accompanying map
- a form for students to fill out to create their own plan to achieve their dreams
