What is Colorado GEAR UP?

We're ending remediation for our students.

The students we serve - minority, low-income and the first in their families to go to college - are the most likely to end up in remedial classes in college. A report from the Colorado Community College System found less than 5 percent of students who start in remedial classes will ever complete a college degree.

The Early Remediation Project

In fall 2011, we launched the Early Remediation Project in two middle schools near Denver. In 2013-14, up to 1,300 students in grades 8, 9 and 10 will enroll in classes mirroring the remedial math and English sequences taught on Colorado campuses.

Benefits for our students:
