Upward Bound is a 100% federally funded program that assists high school students in preparation for successful college entrance. Its purpose is to help students to overcome class, social, academic and cultural barriers to post-secondary education through the provision of academic instruction and advisement, motivational and study skills, along with other support services necessary to give that extra “push” to those interested in attending college and finding the right career.
