Redlands Upward Bound Program
Redlands Community College TRiO Upward Bound is an intensive, year-round, college preparatory program. Our mission is to assist low-income, first-generation, college bound, high school students in attaining the necessary skills to achieve college admission and completion of their baccalaureate degree. Redlands TRiO Upward Bound prepares students academically, culturally, and socially to succeed at the post-secondary level.
Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves: high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.

Participants receive a comprehensive program of rigorous instruction in math, laboratory science, composition, literature, foreign language, study skills, critical thinking, and computer literacy.
