I am Tiffani Bertram, your GEAR UP Academic Specialist! 

GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) is a 7 year federal grant managed through Berea College.  My cohort of students include all 7th and 8th graders and I will be following these students all the way through their senior year of high school!  I will act as a resource for academics and college planning for not only the students - but for their families as well.

The emphasis is on academic success, college and career preparation, and building a college-prep atmosphere within the school.

Here are some goals I will be working toward with the students:

  • Increased academic performance to reach the benchmark on state tests.
  • Graduation of high school academically and personally prepared to succeed in college.
  • Successful enrollment and performance in college that leads to a work-ready career.

I also look forward to working with the families to plan for your child's future after high school.  I will offer opportunities for you to learn about:

  • The different types of education after high school.
  • The different types of colleges, degrees, and trainings available.
  • The different costs of colleges.

You are welcome to stop by the school and visit with me anytime!
