Program Description

TRIO Upward Bound is a federally funded pre-college program designed to assist low-income and potential first generation to college students prepare for college. In partnership with Sequoia Union High School District, our program serves high school students in the communities of East Palo Alto and North Fair Oaks.

The Upward Bound Program is a year round program. The school year consists of monthly workshops at Canada College and weekly tutoring and academic advising at Sequoia High School and Woodside High School. During the summer, Upward Bound students participate in a six week program offering academic courses, workshops, field trips and activities. All classes are taught on the Canada College campus.
