What is Upward Bound?

Upward Bound is a federally funded program with an academic year and a summer component. It serves high school students as well as recently graduated high school students who are transitioning into college.

The program has a yearly tutorial component, biweekly Saturday workshops and a residential summer. The summer session lasts five weeks and covers an intensive program for the regular high school student.

It includes a curriculum to cover Math, Physics, Chemistry, English Composition and Literature, Computer Education and Introductory Spanish with extracurricular activities that range from Judo to additional skills to apply and survive in college. For the bridge students it includes four to seven college credits where the Freshman Experience course is an integral part.

One of the program’s main objectives is to stimulate interest in attending college. We create a college atmosphere for our students, by making the program educational, innovative and fun!
