What is Upward Bound?
Upward Bound is one of the federally funded TRiO grant programs housed at Florence-Darlington Technical College. The program offers assistance to high school students in the development of the skills and motivation necessary to succeed in pre-college performance and ultimately in higher education pursuits. Participants receive instruction and tutoring in English, literature, composition, SAT Math and Verbal, mathematics, science, and foreign language. In addition to academic support, participants are provided with the opportunity to attend cultural events, workshops, and seminars. Information on college preparation, career development, financial aid and scholarships is also provided.
