Upward Bound

What is Upward Bound?

Upward Bound is a federally funded college preparatory program that offers assistance to low-income and first-generation, college-bound high school students. The focus of Upward Bound is to develop skills needed for postsecondary education and to help its graduates enter and stay in college working toward a four-year degree.


Upward Bound is a part of the U.S. Department of Education's initiative to address critical national needs and support our mission of increasing access to quality postsecondary education. For more information please visit the U.S Department of Education's website
