The mission of the Sinclair Community College Upward Bound Program is to increase the likelihood that participants successfully graduate from high school and go on to enroll in and complete post-secondary education.
Upward Bound (UB) is a Pre-College Program funded by the U.S. Department of Education for the purpose of assisting eligible high school students who plan to pursue a college education. Since 1995, Sinclair Upward Bound has provided services and activities oriented towards high school graduation and college readiness.
We envision a program that employs best practices to provide intensive, individualized advising, connect students to resources, and implements equitable curriculum, programming, and interactions to ensure student success.
Sinclair’s Upward Bound serves 149 students each year.
