What Can Upward Bound Do for Me?

You can go to college, and Upward Bound can help! Housed at IUPUI, the Upward Bound program is designed to bridge the gap between high school and college. We'll help you prepare for college—from admissions to campus life to academics.

The mission of Upward Bound is to prepare each participant for successful entrance into a college or university. This college preparatory program is designed to assist students with the development of their academic skills and to provide guidance for success beyond high school. To do so, students participate in two program components: a six-week Summer Academy, which includes a residential stay, and a nine-month academic year component, which supplements the traditional school year.
