The Upward Bound Program at Cosumnes River College is a federally funded, pre-collegiate program that serves students from Florin, Monterey Trail and Valley High Schools. The goal of the Upward Bound Program is to academically prepare low-income, first-generation college students to enroll and graduate from a four-year college/university of their choice. Participating students are selected based upon their ability to benefit from educational support services and be college-ready after graduation. The program is designed to motivate and prepare students with academic potential to have success in education and careers beyond high school.
All program services are FREE, but a serious commitment from the student and family is expected.
Upward Bound activities are scheduled throughout the school year and include a six-week Summer Program designed to prepare students for academic and personal success on a college campus!
The Upward Bound application will be available soon at Florin, Monterey Trail and Valley High schools, as well as on this Web site. Orientations are expected to begin for prospective students and families in December 2017 and January 2018. Upcoming field trips, activities, and Saturday Academic Support Program dates will be posted soon. For questions or to receive more information, please call 916-691-7350.
