Students Hanging Out

Upward Bound Programs


Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance.

UB 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, high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree, and high school students who have a high risk for academic failure. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
