What is Upward Bound?

  • The Upward Bound Program has been sponsored by the College of Charleston since 1975.
  • We are a college preparatory program designed to generate in its participants the skills and motivation necessary for success in education beyond high school. 
  • We provide special academic, cultural, and mentoring opportunities for a limited number of first-generation high school students who have demonstrated the potential and interest to succeed in post-secondary education.

What do we do?  

What is our Mission?

  • To provide the tools to build academic and social success in high school, college and beyond.
