Mission Statement

The Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math-Science Programs seek to foster a supportive learning environment that encourages students' academic success by providing program participants the skills and motivation necessary to enter and succeed in a program of post-secondary education and to cultivate positive regard for self and others.

By high school graduation, UB and UBMS participants will:

  • Enroll in and complete a college preparatory curriculum
  • Display respect for other cultures and communities
  • Develop positive relationships with peers and adults 
  • Participate in acts of civic responsibility

The Goals of Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math-Science are to:

  • Raise high school GPA's to a level consistent with college entry
  • Prepare students for successful application and entry into college
  • Help students and families pursue federal financial aid and other sources of funding for college
  • increase the number of first-generation and low-income students earning a college degree
