Program I Overview
Upward Bound is a pre-college program that has existed at Benedict College for more than 35 years. Students are accepted on the premise that they are college-bound and have the potential to succeed in post-secondary education. This project is geared toward students who meet income guidelines and are from families whose parents have not earned a bachelor’s degree. Upward Bound is for students who have the academic potential for doing college work, but lack the educational preparation and/or resources needed to enter college.
