Upward Bound is one of a number of educational oppportunity programs (TRIO) funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Its mission is to provide low-income and first-generation high school students with the skills and motivation to succeed in high school and college.
Students take four classes in the following areas: math, science, English and either success studies or foreign language. Classes are small and students get plenty of one-on-one attention. Courses tend to be hands-on, with students learning through interacting concretely and creatively with the material. UB courses are designed to inspire excitement about academics and to give students a head start on their upcoming academics.
Students compete in groups in a summer-long creative problem-solving challenge, receive bi-weekly advising, and participate in a wide range of activities throughout the academic year.
Upward Bound is free to eligible students.To apply, students must attend one of six target high schools (Manchester West, Memorial, and Central, Spaulding, Farmington, and Somersworth) and meet eligibility criteria. See website for more information.
