About Us

The Purpose of Upward Bound is to:

Increase the rate at which high school graduates pursue post secondary education, aswell as increase competency in core subject matter; this includes English, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, and Foreign Language. Encourage more students to pursue programs that lead to careers in math and science, gain parental support in social, emotional, and academic growth of their children.
