What is our Purpose?
The Federal TRIO Programs are educational opportunity outreach programs designed to motivate and support students from under-represented backgrounds. TRIO includes six outreach and support programs targeted to serve and assist low-income, first-generation students and students with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline.
Our objective is to prepare our students for success not only in high school but also in a post-secondary educational institution of their choosing.
Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families in which neither parent holds a bachelors degree (first-generation potential-college student). We guide program participants through their high school years, providing academic skills development, information on college admissions and financial aid, career exposure, and first-hand experience of college life. Our objective is to prepare our students for success not only in high school but also in a post-secondary educational institution of their choosing.
