Upward Bound provides a bridge from high school to college for all senior students. The Bridge program begins during their senior year with a retreat where topics for college entrance are introduced and explored. During the academic year, Bridge students are guided through college admissions, registration, scholarships, financial aid, and academic skills building to ensure their success at entering and completing a post-secondary degree.
Following graduation from high school, Bridge students are enrolled in college courses specifically designed to introduce them to the rigor required for success in college. These courses are provided at no cost to students through the federal grant. Bridge students are guided by a coordinator who provides academic counseling and preparation in college-report writing.
