The Upward Bound Program is a federally funded and state supported educational program that provides academic and counseling services to students in preparation for post-secondary education.
The purpose of Upward Bound is to supplement our students secondary school experience by providing opportunities for academic, social, and emotional development in preparation for college.
Lift Academy's summer and academic year programs serve as a supplement to a student's high school experience by creating more opportunities for students to become college ready and build their academic and social skills.
Upward Bound At A Glance
I never really thought that I would actually get into college. Then, I started Upward Bound and I have grown and blossomed...I brought my grades up when I thought I couldn't, and I have made amazing and accepting friends who have the same goals as I do. I want to be a model for my little brother and show him that with a little push and hard work he can be anything and be rewarded in the end. UB family - Thank you!
