Hopkinsville Community College Upward Bound, a federally funded TRIO program, serves 65 high school students in Christian County, Kentucky to prepare for college.
To participate in the Upward Bound program, students will complete an application packet to determine eligibility. A student/parent admission interview is also conducted for eligible applicants.
During the school year, students regularly meet with staff who provide individual academic advising, monitor grades, and assist with tutoring. Students attend monthly high school and Saturday educational enrichment workshops that include college planning assistance, study skills, and cultural programs.
The summer program is a six-week learning experience while pursuing a variety of cultural and educational goals. Students are enrolled in classes throughout the day designed to encourage written and oral communication, foreign language, mathematics, and science skills. A cultural field trip (usually 5 days) and college visits are also part of the summer program.
High school seniors are assisted with college planning including college and financial aid application and entrance exam preparation. Seniors are given the opportunity to attend college visits and, during the academic year, can attend their own cultural/educational field trip. Job shadowing is available to those wishing to explore possible major and career opportunities. Additionally, senior bridge program participants may enroll in a college class at HCC in order to earn college credit prior to high school graduation.
Stipends are paid to all participants. Call today!
