Upward Bound is a federally funded educational opportunity outreach program that promotes and supports students from underrepresented populations.

Upward Bound works with T.R. Proctor High School students through a campus-based program which provides tutoring and instruction in literature, composition, mathematics, science, and foreign language during the academic year as well as a six-week Summer College.

Two-thirds of Upward Bound’s students must be low-income and in the first generation of their family to potentially receive a bachelor’s degree, with the remaining third being either low-income or first generation students.
