Upward Bound Goals

To achieve the goal of college success for students, the program provides:

  • Instruction in a variety of academic subjects in addition to reinforcement of the necessary academic skills needed for success in secondary education and preparation for higher education.
  • Encouragement and motivation for completion of secondary education.
  • Academic and Career guidance.
  • Assistance in gaining admission to post-secondary institutions.

Transcripts are reviewed at midyear, and counseling is provided to support course selections for the upcoming semester. These activities help the students with tracking credits needed to meet graduation requirements.
