Start preparing for college!
Currently Thomas University has two programs that provide support and information to students in middle school and high school who would like more information on how to prepare for and succeed in college. Both programs are funded by grants through the U.S. Department of Education:
- Gear-up: (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) The GEAR UP program serves a cohort of students who attend middle and high school in the Thomasville City School System, specifically students who are in the eighth, ninth and tenth grades. The purpose of the program is to encourage students to study hard, stay in school, and enter into a postsecondary institution and graduate.
- Educational Talent Search Educational Talent Search (ETS) is an enrichment program for middle school and high school students. The program provides services to six hundred students in several southern Georgia school districts: Grady, Decatur, Mitchell-Baker, Thomasville City, Brooks and Valdosta City Schools. The program provides services such as after-school tutorials, workshops, college tours and cultural enrichment activities.
