About Upward Bound

Holly Cheering: About Upward BoundUpward Bound has two different components: the summer program and the academic year program. Students usually apply to the summer program during the second semester of the sophomore year and come to the Bowdoin College campus for a six week experience in the summers before both the junior and senior years of high school. During the academic year, Upward Bound counselors visit students in their schools every month to provide academic counseling, help arrange for tutors in their college prep (as needed), supply information about college and careers, etc. All students participate in Upward Bound year-round.
