What is Upward Bound?

Upward Bound is a year-round program for motivated high-school freshmen, sophomores and juniors who want to continue their education after high school. Students who meet the eligibility requirements will benefit from services including academic tutoring, assistance in obtaining financial aid, on-campus summer programs, field trips and college prep.

Students in Upward Bound are four times more likely to earn an undergraduate degree than students from similar backgrounds who did not participate in the program.
