In addition, Upward Bound also offers Saturday sessions where students attend presentations on topics of interest.

  • Instruction in math, laboratory sciences, composition and literature, and foreign language.
  • Educational field trips, college tours, and guest speakers to broaden students’ experience.
  • Interacting with other students who are also college bound.

What does it cost?  Nothing!  Program participation is absolutely free to those students who qualify.
