The GEAR UP program sponsored by MassEdCO at Roger L. Putnam Vocational Technical Academy in Springfield is a featured program on the Department of Higher Education's Mass. GEAR UP website.
"Working with 1,400 students in grades nine through twelve, Roger L. Putnam Vocational Technical Academy serves high school students in Springfield who are interested in an academic and vocational education. Its GEAR UP program serves 510 of these students, helping them pursue their dreams after high school.
"Putnam's GEAR UP students have gone on to continue their education at two- and four-year colleges, private and public, and many have directly joined the work force.
"Putnam GEAR UP was the first GEAR UP MA school to offer instant acceptances during their 2015 Massachusetts College Application Celebration (MCAC). Since then, Putnam has continued to expand this event and now not only offers instant acceptances but also offers on-the-spot scholarships from schools."
