TRiO Upward Bound
This pre-college program is designed to prepare high school students for higher education by offering instruction in five core areas: Literature, Composition, Math, Science and Foreign Language. Instruction in these areas is provided throughout the academic year and during a six-week summer component. In addition to instruction, students receive tutoring, advising, test preparation workshops, assistance in filling out documents necessary to pursue their college careers, and exposure to cultural and recreational activities.
The program currently serves students from Lytle, Jourdanton, Pleasanton, and Poteet high schools. Upward Bound is funded through the United States Department of Education.
