Upward Bound is a Federally funded education program aimed at increasing academic and motivational levels of low income and First Generation high school students so that they will graduate and successfully pursue a college education.
Through early intervention, Upward Bound targets students in grades nine through twelve who appear to have the capacity for college but need support and guidance to fully realize this potential. To achieve this goal, Upward Bound serves Low Income, and or First Generation* high school students. Students must also be planning to attend or are attending a Flint High School (Southwestern Academy, Northwestern), Beecher or Hamady High School.

* FIRST GENERATION - Means neither parent has graduated with a four-year degree from a University or College.
