Upward Bound Program

The Higher Education Preparation Program / Upward Bound Program has been designed to provide high school students with an intensive and challenging academic experience; one that promises to contribute to your overall development as you prepare the transition from high school graduation to college enrollment. Courses covered in our program are math, science, computer applications, personal growth, writing, composition, and laboratory sciences. There is an academic year (September - June) and a summer program (June - August), which, if qualified and approved, you would stay on Le Moyne campus.
