Current Upward Bound Students! Summer is quickly approaching!
Remember, SUMMER FORMS
are due no later than the April Return Trip, April 26th! All students received their summer forms packet at a school visit or through the mail. If you have lost any part of this use the SUMMER FORMS
link to download and print new forms!
This year's summer program will begin in June. Non-Bridge students (2013-2014 school year freshmen, sophomores & juniors) will attend a nonresidential week on June 3-5, 2014 and will move into the residence halls on June 8th! Bridge students (eligible 2013-2014 school year seniors) will move into the residence halls on June 1st! When Non-Bridge student move in, please consult THIS SCHEDULE
to determine when to arrive.
Upward Bound is recruiting for the 2013-2014 academic year. Joining now will ensure your spot in our 2014 Summer program! If you've heard any of our students talk about the program, you know it both fun and educational! It's better than sitting at home for the summer because you will get to meet about 250 other students from the region. We have amazingly fun activities to keep you busy, and our classes will help prepare you for college both academically and socially!
So what are you waiting for? We serve students from the public high school in following counties Boyd, Carter (both East and West Carter), Elliott, Fleming, Johnson, Lawrence, Lewis, Magoffin, Mason, Menifee, Morgan and Rowan. Apply today by seeing your high school guidance counselor for an application or print your own here
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but many schools have already begun recruiting, and will finish by Mid November. Be sure to get your application submitted today to ensure you have a spot in UB!
The 2013-2014 Academic Year Handbook, along with a number of other forms are now available. We will be discussing these during a visit to your school in September, but these will be here if you'd like a little light reading ahead of time, or if you lose yours after being given a paper copy.
We hope you're looking forward to the September Return Trip. You'll get to reconnect with all the friends you made this summer!
Here's a reminder of all the great students we had this summer at Upward Bound Summer 2013!
