A partnership program for GEAR UP Alabama students The purpose of the DISCOVER program is to educate students on how to navigate their high school years in order to be better prepared for applying, being accepted to and attending college. The DISCOVER program is a four year program beginning in the fall of 9th grade and ending in the spring of 12th grade.

One week day during each semester (fall and spring only), students participating in the DISCOVER program will arrive on the University of Montevallo campus at 10 a.m. and will depart at 1 p.m. Students will participate in a morning session, be provided lunch, and then attend an afternoon session. Each session will be specific in providing grade appropriate information as well as giving the students a glimpse into life on a college campus.

9th Grade – The Academic Road Map - Mentally prepare students for what the next three years will look like.

10th Grade – Get Active, Get Results - Civic engagement and how it relates to student’s future and how it impacts their community.

11th Grade – From the Minors to the Big Leagues - ACT prep and soft skills training to include how to interview and face to face networking.

Summer between 11th and 12th Grade - Students will be asked to bring one parent/guardian with them to stay the night on the University of Montevallo campus (arrive Friday night and depart at noon on Saturday). While on campus, participants will hear from a panel of first generation parents and students, learn about the FASFA, take a tour of the campus and City of Montevallo and learn more about what to expect during the senior year of high school.

12th Grade – Show What You Know - Teaching students how to look for scholarships, how to know what’s available and where to find them.
