Upward Bound will provide educational services to ensure eligible participants develop academic, emotional, social, motivational, cultural, leadership, and life-long learning skills necessary to graduate from high school, enroll in college, and earn a Bachelor's degree.
Two components of Upward Bound
- Portfolio Program
- Summer Academy (4-week summer residential program on the NAU campus for incoming Sophomores and Juniors) (5-week summer residential program on the NAU campus for incoming Seniors)
