Upward Bound Summer Residential Program

The 6-week residential summer program combines concentrated academic work and recreational activities for students in grades 9-12. Students live on campus in the dormitory and experience an introduction to college life. Activities during the week consist of mandatory classes. The classroom work addresses academic weaknesses or enrichment and attempts to prepare the student for the next school year. 

Evenings include special activities and field trips to various close-by cities, visiting other colleges and universities, and various other activities which may include visiting nature reserves, attending local plays, and participating in cultural workshops. 

A special note to parents


Adult supervision is on a 24-hour basis when TRiO Upward Bound students are in the residential program during the summer. Besides the regular staff, the summer staff consists of five instructors, two or more residential supervisors and two recreational instructors. The staff continually assists each student in meeting academic, social and personal needs.
