The Upward Bound Program assists students from selected high schools, grades nine to 12, in pursuing post-secondary education.
Students must meet guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of Education in order to enter the program. Students must come from a low-income family, as determined by the federal government, and must be from a home where neither parent has a bachelor’s degree. Students then go through an application and interview process. Upward Bound is designed to serve high school students who are serious about attending a four-year college.
A six-week residential summer program is conducted on the Clarion University of Pennsylvania campus. During the academic year, programs are held once a month on campus and weekly meetings are conducted at the students’ schools.
Upward Bound offers courses in math, science, English, and foreign languages, as well as a career exploration course.
