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.
