College & Career Center


The College & Career Center is a great place to get free assistance for college and career planning for all ECHS students. Students are encouraged to visit the College & Career Center before or after school, virtually during drop-in Zoom office hours every Monday from 1:00-2:00 pm, or by making an appointment. Parents are also welcome to call, email or make an appointment to get all of your questions answered. We are here to help make planning for life after high school a little easier!

The Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is a federally funded initiative administered by the United States Department of Education. GEAR UP is a seven year grant awarded to MiraCosta College to work with Oceanside Unified School District to serve the students who started the program at Chavez, Martin Luther King, Jefferson and Lincoln Middle Schools. The GEAR UP Grant will follow these students to El Camino High School and Oceanside High School and will continue to serve all students in these two high schools (Class of 2024 and 2025). The GEAR UP program offers a variety of supportive services like in-class tutoring and after-class tutoring. We also provide field trips, college visits, and industry sector visits for interested students. In addition to that, we feature college/career counseling and student/parent workshops.
