The U.S. Department of Education has just funded California State University Northridge to partner with Olive Vista Middle School and Sylmar High School for a comprehensive school reform project. The project is called Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR-UP) with the goal of increasing the number of students going to college.  All 7th grade students will be served in the first year, followed by a new 7th grade cohort every year, until they graduate from high school.

Other project partners are the Northeast Valley Urban Village Initiative (NEVUVI) and New United Motor Manufacturing Incorporated (NUMMI), who will help us achieve our goal of a school, student, and family community culture with high expectations and effective support for students. Our project emphasizes community building and school restructuring in a brand new way that is exciting and purposeful.
