Upward Bound's mission is to provide high school students with the motivation and academic skills necessary to successfully complete high school and enter post secondary education.
To be eligible, you must be low income and first-generation college bound. Also, you must be taking college prep courses, have a desire to attend college, adhere to Upward Bound's standards and possess a 2.0 GPA or above.
Via the Saturday sessions and the six-week summer academy, students will improve their test-taking skills, study effectiveness and cultural awareness through travel and enrichment.
Successful students are eligible to take transferable courses through STLCC-Forest Park for free.
