Special Academic Programs
Funded and supported by the U.S. Department of Education and Kean
University, Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants
in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities
for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately
in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves: high school
students from low-income families; and high school students in which
neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward Bound
is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education
and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
