WHO WE ARE
AACE Upward Bound is a comprehensive year-round program that provides fundamental support and educational services to high school students as they prepare for higher education. The program provides opportunities for student participants to succeed in their pre-college performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate of low income and/or first generation college bound students enrolling in post-secondary education, as well as graduating from a post-secondary institution. Throughout the Upward Bound program, students will have the opportunity to participate in many educational activities related to their college readiness.
