Program Description

L&C's Upward Bound Program is a college-preparatory program that strengthens the abilities of high school students and encourages them to further their education after graduating.

Through weekly in-school meetings, workshops and individualized tutoring, students develop their study skills and their abilities in reading, writing, mathematics, science, and computer use. The program also offers opportunities for career exploration, academic advisement, and ACT/SAT preparation. And to help students understand the college-search process, the program provides resources on college admissions and financial aid information, monthly college visits. Academic, personal, group, and peer counseling are part of the program as well.
