During A2 time, students have the opportunity to finish homework and/or receive one-on-one tutoring. Upward Bound provides the students with the necessary resources to succeed in school and encourages continued education after high school. Upward Bound provides the students with a quiet, safe environment to study, along with assistance for subjects they may be struggling.

Each week students must attend at least one hour of Academic Assistance (A2). Each year beginning with the first week of A2, all students will be required to meet for one hour of A2 at their school's tutoring site. A2 time will be evaluated and adjusted from 1st quarter, 1st semester an 3rd quarter grades. Student's with A's & B's are required to obtain one hour of Academic Assistance each week. These students are eligible to opt out with parental consent; first year students are not eligible to opt out of A2. Students who have a C are required to obtain one hour of A2 each week. Studetns who have D's or F's are required to obtain two hours of A2 each week.

Self-tutoring is available for students who are involved in sports or other activities that prevents the student from attending A2. A contract for self-tutoring must be complete before self-tutoring can begin. Self tutoring cannot begin without consent from the UB staff.
