Madill Public Schools, in partnership with Oklahoma GEAR UP, continues to celebrate ongoing success in helping students and families prepare for college. Madill works directly with GEAR UP to provide early intervention services and strategies for approximately 770 students in grades seven through 12. GEAR UP activities with Madill include administrator and teacher training in school leadership, school data analysis and planning, advanced science, math and English teaching strategies, creating a college going culture, counseling for college readiness and more. Students and their families receive information on college planning and how to apply for financial aid.

More than 400 students toured a college campus to learn about college programs and life on campus. A total of 56 high school seniors participated in College App Week last November, resulting in 87 completed college applications with the assistance of onsite college mentors. Freshman students participated in a rookie camp for new high school students designed to start students off on the right track in their new school setting.
