What is Upward Bound?
Upward Bound is a federally funded, national, pre-college educational program designed to assist high school students with the improvement of their academic skills. In Fall River, Attleboro and Taunton, the Upward Bound Program is sponsored by Bristol Community College. The major goals for each Upward Bound student are the successful completion of high school and entrance into a college or university. Upward Bound also provides expanded social, cultural and educational opportunities in order to broaden the background of each student.
