A Federally Funded Grant Program

TRIO Upward Bound (UB) is a federally funded program through the U.S. Department of Education. UB provides high school students with opportunities and assistance in exploring their potential for academic, social and personal growth. Its purpose is to provide equal access to post-secondary education for high school students by giving them adequate preparation.

These goals are achieved by providing students with developmental work in areas where they may need help, enrichment where they are strong, and exposure to new areas where they have yet to be challenged. Through tutoring for grade improvement, counseling to address career and personal matters, counseling on the college admissions and financial aid processes, and training in test-taking skills, students gain the confidence and skills needed to succeed.
