Gear Up

A new kind of 360° prep school, helping students get ready for college and become differentiated humans.

Go Beyond School

Good grades in normal classes are no longer distinguishing.  Now, it's all about peaks, self-knowledge, marketable skill sets, and great storytelling. Let's work on it together.

Gear Up is about standing out from the pack.

Gear Up is a program that integrates studies and helps create a broader sense of purpose, provokes original thinking and unique work.  The non-negotiable stack of academic work takes less time, so we help students learn to become their best selves.

Good Old Study Habits

While we leverage technology and innovation, we think evidence suggests we need to have solid, good old study habits.  It turns out algorithms and interactive media are only good if students have strong study habits. 

A Focus on a Great Work Portfolio

Our opportunities are often contingent on our ability to represent great work. We help every student develop a great work portfolio across subjects, grades, teachers, interests and hobbies.
