Last Wednesday October 14th, Pasco High School hosted their annual College and Career Readiness Day, a day where all of PHS students were fortunate enough to have a post-grad experience in the morning. During this time, with the help of GEAR UP all 10th and 11th graders were able to take their PSAT’s. This effort was made so that our OVPIII students familiarized themselves with the structure, content, and process of taking the SATs and for them to get a sense of how they will perform on the actual SAT’s. This practice served as a good way for students to know which subject area they should focus on when studying for the SAT’s.
Later in the evening PHS hosted Open House and Post Grad night, where Pasco High Families were welcomed to come meet with recruiters from different colleges and universities and start asking questions about post-secondary options. Parents and Guardians also had the opportunity to meet with teachers, administrators, GEAR UP and Pasco High Staff. During this time GEAR UP staff had a chance to meet one-on-one with parents and give them detailed information about GEAR UP services and gave them resources to better help their students prepare for a post-secondary institution.
GEAR UP staff is happy they were able to assist in this successful day where students took a step closer to get a post-secondary education. We are glad we have a great partnership with our counselors, administrators, and teachers to have had this day be a success and look forward to continue this partnership for years to come.
