Upward Bound Mission

Upward Bound Mission

This preparatory college program is federally funded by a grant through the U.S. Department of Education. The UB program will maintain 50 project participants each academic school year. The intent of this program is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of post secondary education. Eligible students must show a need for academic support in order to pursue a program of education beyond high school. Students are offered the opportunity to enhance talents and skills related to their core curriculum, prepare for post-secondary education and prepare for college opportunities.
