Marietta Public Schools, in partnership with Oklahoma GEAR UP, continues to celebrate ongoing success in helping students and families prepare for college. Marietta works directly with GEAR UP to provide early intervention services and strategies for approximately 400 students in grades seven through 12. GEAR UP activities with Marietta 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.

A total of 62 high school seniors participated in College App Week last November, resulting in 129 completed college applications with the assistance of onsite college mentors. More than 275 students toured a college campus to learn about college programs and life on campus. Four students participated in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) institute at Connors State College in Warner and Redlands Community College in El Reno.
