TRIO Upward Bound (UB) is a pre-college program, funded through the United States Department of Education (ED), that provides academic support during the school year as well as during the summer for high school students in Fayette and Raleigh County. Program participants must have a desire to continue their education past high school.
Program participants meet with the Assistant Director and Educational Outreach Counselor one-on-one or in small group settings at their respective high schools once a month to discuss concerns and answer any questions. In addition, students must complete a minimum of two hours of online tutoring each month. Finally, the program hosts a variety of "Monthly Meetings" each month ranging from ACT/SAT prep, college campus visits and hands-on STEM activities.
