TARGET HIGH SCHOOLS
Schools Our Program Serves
From this day forward...
Believe it or not, your four years in High School can make the biggest difference for the next 40 years of life! High School is the end of your 12 years of mandatory school and it sets the stage for your "journey into adulthood". It is also the commencement of college choices, admissions, and higher education opportunities. How you do in High School and in the Upward Bound (UB) program, especially with your grades, will determine the options you have for colleges, universities, scholarships, and other future college and career opportunities.

day, and your Spring grades will be an improvement over your Fall grades. Go for the grades, because they are what matters most, and every student can improve or sustain their grades, while concurrently becoming a better scholar and person. As you know, I am rewarding UB students with As and Bs (it is no longer about getting Cs and being ok – being average; “no C average”). I am also rewarding effort. So, be sure to have a written Personal Improvement Plan for your academics, for this Spring. We will revise them this summer, for the next academic year. While money can be a motivator, I hope the words above and your own goals for a brighter future…will make a you brighter student and better scholar…today!
