upward bound Summer Academy

We have planned an exciting and rewarding Summer Residential Academy on our beautiful campus focusing on academics, cultural and social development, and other experiences not normally available to students in our community. The program is designed to simulate a college-going experience.  

From Sunday evenings through Friday evenings students live in the campus residence hall, take classes in college classrooms, eat in the campus dining hall, and enjoy a full schedule of activities, field trips.  Students go home on Friday evenings between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and return to campus on Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m.   

Students who attend this unique experience with an open mind and a willingness to work hard will leave the summer with new friends, great memories, and a greater sense of their future educational and career potential.
