Participation

Upward Bound serves motivated individuals committed to pursuing a college degree upon high school graduation and provides a variety of opportunities to help students explore and grow as individuals and scholars throughout their high school careers. Students will be expected to take responsibility for their own development.

Scholars must commit to maintaining a high school GPA of a 2.5 (80 or higher), attending weekly tutoring sessions, bi-monthly student progress and college planning meetings, monthly Saturday Academies, and a six week Summer session before junior and senior year. Additionally, we hold each scholar to a standard of active participation—maintaining a positive participant attitude and individual motivation to be a part of Upward Bound program activities.
