Program Description

Serving students at North Hollywood High. Upward Bound provides fundamental support and preparation for college. Serving more than 60 students annually from low-income families and/or high school students from families in which neither parent holds a college degree.

The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from post-secondary education. We provide after-school academic instruction in core subjects and foreign languages, as well as PSAT, SAT, and ACT test preparation. Career exploration and mentoring are also an integral component to assist participants in deciding on potential college majors and career options.

We also provide college and career planning workshops, a summer program, individualized academic planning and counseling, financial aid advising, scholarship and application assistance, supplemental Saturday instruction and weekly tutoring as well as college and cultural field trips and an alumni program.
