The Upward Bound Math/Science Program prepares students for college by helping students obtain the academic skills and motivation necessary for success in high school and in college!!

About Tri-C's Upward Bound:
Upward Bound Math/Science (UBMS) is an after school pre-college program that provides college prep services and exposure to educational  and career opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine or Math (STEM). The program is federally funded and serves 50 students.
 
All services are provided free of charge to that student.  

What Upward Bound does:
From September to May we provide services to help students develop academic skills in Math, Science, and English required to pass the OGT and meet the ACT college readiness benchmarks. Students are also given  pre-ACT assessments to prepare for the actual ACT and to determine their college readiness. During the summer (June – July) students engage in intensive course work in Math, Science, English, a foreign language, and technology and activities to further prepare them for college and future careers.  

We advise students on high school course selection, college planning, applying for financial aid and scholarships, careers, and internship opportunities. Students are exposed to STEM careers through college field trips, guest speakers, and group lectures by STEM professionals.   

Outcomes/Expectations:
UBMS students are also two times more likely to enroll in college. Students enrolled in UBMS are expected to attend college in the Fall following high school graduation.  

Funding:
UBMS is funded by the U.S. Department of Education for $250,000/year (Sponsored by Tri-C).  

Additional details and services:   

  • Interested students must complete an application and the student-parent/guardian interview with UBMS staff.  
  • Support services are provided during high school to assist students in developing the core academic skills in Math, Science, and English required for achieving academic success in high school and college.
  • UBMS is a year-round program comprised of two components - school year (September – May) and summer (June – July).  
  • Both the school year and summer components are mandatory for all new students!
