Upward Bound Overview
The North Shore Upward Bound program is one of over 900 Upward Bound programs across the nation that help eligible high school students achieve their goals of graduating high school and continuing on to earn a college degree. The students that Upward Bound serves must be first generation potential college students (neither parent/guardian has earned a bachelor's degree) and/or come from low-income families (with incomes at or below 150% of federal poverty line).
