Most students wonder what to expect when they join Upward Bound.

While Upward Bound can be hard work, it's also a great deal of fun where students are encouraged to be themselves, work hard, play hard, and make friends from different area schools.

Students are given the opportunity to experiment with different classes than the ones at their high schools, which enables them to discover talents and interests they didn't know existed.

The students learn the benefits of team work through group activities and open discussions with their peers and with program instructors and administrators.

They also discover that although they come from different schools and different situations, they're all heading in the same direction — Toward Higher Education.
