GV Scholar Academy

July 1, 2020

Grand View has partnered with GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) to provide participating students a summer academy experience at no cost to students selected to participate!

We are excited to announce plans for the GV Scholar Academy that will take place August 14-20 for Grand View GEAR UP students. We have a fun and engaging week planned that will help students get a jump start on college and set them up for success. The program will include a one-credit-hour history course, field trips to Living History Farms, the Iowa State Historical Society museum and Woodland Mound State Preserve, movies, academic success programming and fun evening activities.

Students will move in to the residence halls on Friday, August 14 and the Scholar Academy will begin on Saturday, August 15. Housing, meals and the course for the week will all be covered by the GEAR UP grant.
