You can go to college, and Upward Bound can help!

We Are Upward Bound

Housed at IUPUI, the Upward Bound program is designed to bridge the gap between high school and college. We'll help you prepare for college—from admissions to academics to campus life.



We get an insight as to what our futures could be like if we go to college and get a degree.
