Upward Bound's Purpose

The Upward Bound Program is one of the five TRIO Programs funded by the United States Department of Education.Upward Bound helps motivate high school students to finish high school and obtain a four-year degree (and beyond) from the colleges of their choice.  Through academic advisement and developmental support, Upward Bound staff will strive to provide students with a solid foundation on which to prepare them to finish high school and make the transition to college life.

Current Target Schools

The USC Lancaster Upward Bound staff now work in conjunction with Andrew Jackson High School (Kershaw, SC), Lancaster High School (Lancaster, SC), and Buford High School (Lancaster, SC).  A maximum of sixty (60) students from all three high schools will be accepted from 9 th grade only to participate in the program.  Accepted students remain in the program until graduation from high school and completion of the Summer Bridge Program.
