Upward Bound is a year round, pre-college program serving students in grades 9-12 from Fall River, Taunton and Attleboro.
The program is designed to prepare students academically and socially for the upcoming school year. In addition to academics, students participate in activities addressing the issues which affect today's teens. Students also participate in an adventure challenge program, engage in technology training, and take trips to area college campuses and various cultural offerings.
During the academic year, Upward Bound students receive academic tutoring, advising and counseling. Students participate in weekly college advising, financial aid workshops and math, science and English workshops and attend SAT and MCAS preparation classes. Saturday program events monthly include seminars with admissions representatives from area colleges, speakers, an annual ski trip and more.
Students are required to participate in social and cultural activities as well as perform community service.
