H. Councill Trenholm State College Upward Bound

Program Description

Trenholm State Upward Bound assists high school students in graduating from high school and preparing for success in college. Upward Bound offers students on-going support and a wide variety of opportunities to gain experience and skills designed to help them succeed in high school and college.

Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves: high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
