Academic, College & Career Advising

GEAR UP 4 LA schools enjoys a dedicated counselor and/or advisor for each cohort. Students work one-on-one with an advisor for an entire school year, collaborating on setting a pathway to college and determining how they will achieve their goals. This ongoing relationship helps students achieve a successful academic experience.

Using data, evaluations, research-based methods, GU4LA counselors/advisors provide students and parents with programs in three critical areas: academic, personal/social, and career.
