upward bound Summer Academy

We have planned an exciting and rewarding Summer Academy on our beautiful campus focusing on academics, cultural and social development, and other experiences not normally available to students in our community. The program is designed to simulate a college-going experience.  

Students who attend this unique experience with an open mind and a willingness to work hard will leave the summer with new friends, great memories, and a greater sense of their future educational and career potential.
