What is Upward Bound?
The Upward Bound College Prep Academy provides academic, social, cultural, recreational, and counseling services in order to provide students with the skills, motivation, and self-confidence necessary for success in college. During the school year, students will be able to receive tutoring and learn study skills when representatives visit our school. Students will take field trips that are either cultural or recreational, and they will be able to take part in a six-week program while living at Marietta College. To qualify, you must meet one of two criteria: Neither of your parents graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree, or, your family’s income does not exceed the federal guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Education.
