By "academic," we mean that participants take classes that are either college classes or classes that are organized by Upward Bound. Students may choose from a variety of diverse and enriching classes designed to enhance skills necessary to succeed in high school and transition to college. We offer classes in Composition, Literature, Math, Lab Science, Foreign Languages, Computers, and other subjects. 我们的课程帮助参与者在他们的高中获得选修学分. 他们也可以在有时间的时候报名参加推荐全球十大博彩公司排行榜的课程.

By "residential" we mean that participants live on campus in the dorms for a true college-simulated experience.

We also offer a Summer Bridge Program for recent high school graduates to help them bridge to college life. These participants take a college class and are employed in a work-study position on campus. 他们也可以住在宿舍,并参加住宿顾问实习. 

参与者在暑假期间学到了很多关于大学的知识. 他们也会与正在上大学的导师一起工作. 我们的许多导师在高中时都是上进计划的参与者.

This year we have an exciting new component that will allow students who are unable to attend the summer program to take an online class and still be able to earn some high school elective credits. 我们将尽快发布更多消息, 但是如果你有任何直接的问题,你可以推荐全球十大博彩公司排行榜的办公室.
