Upward Bound Classic
Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for
college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in
their pre-college performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward
Bound serves: high school students from low-income families; and high school students
from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward
Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and
enroll in and graduate from institutions of post secondary education.
Services Provided by the Program Include:
* Summer programs of ACT prep and tutoring in all subjects;
* Year-round counseling, tutoring and academic advisement;
* Exposure to College faculty and facilities;
If you are interested in pursuing a college degree after you finish high school,
