Upward Bound

Upward Bound

Upward Bound provides services to selected high school students who are potential first-generation college students and who meet specific family income guidelines. Concentrated academic services are provided on Poteau campus for six weeks each summer with periodic follow-up services provided throughout the academic year. Personal enrichment activities such as cultural events and individual tutorial services are also provided giving students a jump start to get them through high school and into postsecondary school.
