Upward Bound

The Upward Bound program is funded through the US Department of Education to serve 68 high school students in Lexington and Fairfield County. The program serves economically disadvantaged students and potential first-generation college students. Upward Bound provides comprehensive and intensive academic, social, career and cultural activities to enable students to complete high school and pursue post-secondary education. The program includes academic and summer components. The academic component consists of math, science, English, foreign language and personal enrichment classes, as well as tutoring on Saturdays from September through May at Midlands Technical College. The summer component is a six-week program that provides classes and an opportunity to experience college life while living on a college campus.
