As a student in our summer program, you have the opportunity to prepare...

for the approaching school year by taking courses to overcome weaknesses as well as getting a head start on courses in the sciences, mathematics, composition and literature. As a senior, you can also take courses designed to prepare you directly for the college entrance examinations.

"I have learned the meaning of doing well in school. Before joining UPWARD BOUND, I was satisfied with just passing because that's all I thought I could do. I was definitely wrong! I found out that if I applied myself, I could do better." (S.G.,'87)

Each student works with our staff to create an individualized plan...

that includes three academic classes in the morning with an average class size of eight students. To support your efforts in the classroom, we provide a supervised study lab in the evening, complete with professional and paraprofessional tutors. In fact, most of our tutors live in the residence hall where they can continue to provide you with assistance.

You can imagine that, with such a small class size, you will receive the help you need and also get to know your teachers in a special way. Our faculty are selected from area colleges and high schools for their dedication to helping students perform closer to their potential. And since your teachers are evaluated by our students every semester, we are confident that you will find them to be effective classroom leaders.
